Lecture of Prof. Patrick Henry Winston at MIT. Bridging the gap from people to machines requires a complex understanding of how we think. Winston asserts we think with our eyes, our hands, our mouth. Humans rely upon visual, motor, and linguistic faculties to learn and solve problems. Perceptual powers enable naming, describing, categorizing and recalling. In the aggregate, these processes are “commonsense,’ a hallmark of cognition that Winston aims to vest in computer programs — to endow transistors with the nuanced capabilities of neurons.
