Defending AI Research by John McCarthy

Book Description

John McCarthy's influence in computer science ranges from the invention of LISP and time-sharing to the coining of the term AI and the founding of the AI laboratory at Stanford University. One of the foremost figures in computer sciences, McCarthy has written papers which are widely referenced and stand as milestones of development over a wide range of topics. In this collection of reviews, McCarthy staunchly defends the importance of Artificial Intelligence research against its attackers; this book gathers McCarthy's reviews of books which discuss and criticise the future of AI. Here, McCarthy explores the larger questions associated with AI, such as the question of the nature of intelligence, of the acquisition and application of knowledge, and the question of the politics behind this research.

Is This Legal? by John McCarthy Is This Legal?, Hardback (July 2014)

On November 12, 1993, an entirely new sport was unleashed on an unsuspecting viewing public--one that was unlike any other, and one that would come to redefine combat and action sports for a new generation. The sport was mixed martial arts (MMA) and the event was the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

You Can't Hide the Sun by John McCarthy You Can't Hide the Sun, Paperback (June 2013)

Determined to understand the day-to-day complexities of being a Palestian-Arab in modern-day Israel, the author discovers the hidden stories of the ordinary people who must live out their lives in the shadow of a brutal conflict, and asks the vital question - how does humanity endure under such great oppression?
