interesting, but i suspect the conclusion is false: the human mind does not run on logic, and it's possible to construct thinking machines that don't either
this is a neat approach, extracting rules for generating responses, from user input. try to ignore the scattered gui :)
excellent article on the nature of consciousness, from an ai standpoint
neat... i'd guess that any animal with mirror neurons will be able to recognize itself; there's gotta be a feedback loop in order for it to work :)
see Robert Hecht-Nielsen's video halfway down the page -- his work is arguably the most important to date in A.I., bringing us an order of magnitude closer to fully-capable thinking machines.
this is really good, i think it gives insights into how the human mind works
ahh, and here's the original; much more concise
you might consider it humor, but i see it as insight into the thought process of the internet
good article about efficiently making decisions. FTA: "If you aren't handicapped by knowing too much, don't waste time gathering reams of information." lifted from tapwaterj
minsky proposes an approach to design based on the assumption that parts of the machine are going to break

computers are a lot like the brain, in that they both process information. here are some of the many differences. one of the best perspectives i've read on this topic is the classic book The Computer And The Brain, by one of computing's founding fathers John von Neumann. it's an excellent read.
a side note: tests performed on certain AI systems, exposing them to large numbers of complex patterns (language, like music) show very clear results -- check out this man's work: Professor Robert Hecht-Nielsen. i'm fascinated by his "sentence continuation" experiments
I like how the researchers approached this problem
