The society of Mind

This book is a collection of thoughts – one thought per page. It talks about how human mind is a collection of smaller components for solving particular problems. If you are afraid that the big players in AI are going to build strong AI – read this book. You will know how mimicking human behavior is not so easy. What I found interesting about this book was at times Minskey would leave the area of  machine intelligence and  move towards spirituality. He has some interesting pages on what “being self aware” means. This is a Must Have for anyone interesting in strong AI.
