Marvin Minsky On AI 231

An anonymous reader writes "In a three-part Dr. Dobbs podcast, AI pioneer and MIT professor Marvin Minsky examines the failures of AI research and lays out directions for future developments in the field. In part 1, 'It's 2001. Where's HAL?' he looks at the unfulfilled promises of artificial intelligence. In part 2 and in part 3 he offers hope that real progress is in the offing. With this talk from Minsky, Congressional testimony on the digital future from Tim Berners-Lee, life-extension evangelization from Ray Kurzweil, and Stephen Hawking planning to go into space, it seems like we may be on the verge of another AI or future-science bubble."

lisah writes: "Renowned open source supporter Eric Raymond vented his spleen in an open letter to Fedora. Touched off by four hours worth of headaches while trying to upgrade a single package, Raymond says he's jumping ship after 13 years but says it's 'a damn, dirty shame' it had to come to that."
