The Emotion Machine

On Sunday, December 13th, the Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: Popular Science Book Club will conclude its Fall 2009 Mortals & Machines series with the book The Emotion Machine by Marvin Minsky. The Emotion Machine is a call for a “back to basics” approach to using the human mind as a model for artificial intelligence. Marvin Minsky finds his academic home at MIT, where he is a scholar of cognitive psychology, robotics and artificial intelligence, among many other things. He is tentatively scheduled to speak to the book club in a teleconference on the day of our meeting.

Our meetings are always free and open to the public, so feel free to stop by!
