Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This video looks at the world of artificial intelligence and the strides that have been made in computer technology. While computers can work faster and more efficiently than ever, can artificial intelligence successfully be devised to actually learn and think like humans? This film presents a discussion with Dr. Marvin Minsky, professor at M.I.T., a pioneer in artificial intelligence. Dr. Minsky has spent decades grappling with the problem of simulating human intelligence, and has built many "learning machines" to explore the issue. His thoughts and other cutting-edge research give insight into the nature of what we call the mind.
