BROOKS AND THE NEW AI
Cambrian Intelligence : The Early History Of The New AI, is a compilation of the best papers of Rodney Brooks and embody the principles of the new AI. In the preface Brooks uses two diagrams - probably the best way to convey the new AI.
|The Old AI : Pre-Brooks, Sense-Plan-Act notion|
|The New AI : The new model, where the perceptual and action subsystems are all that really is. Cognition is only in the eye of the observer|
Brooks, inadvertently confirms that the beauty of cognition indeed lies in the eyes of the beholder !
