Subject: (Book) about "History of Artificial Intelligence" with
Hi, when I was thinking regarding early periods of AI, then the book of
Rodney Brooks, " _Cambrian Intelligence_: The Early History of the New
AI" came to my mind and thought might also interest you. In the book,
author introduces a behaviour-based approach to robotics. The main aspect
of his theory is the realization that directly coupling perception with
action gives rise to the power of intelligence, and cognition is relative
to the observer.
The book has two sections, as Technology and Philosophy with chapters,
such as --A Robust Layered Control System for a Mobile Robot, A Robot That
Walks: Emergent Behaviors from a Carefully Evolved Network, Intelligence,
Intelligent without Reason..etc..
