Flycer’s Secondary Explanation:





Marvin Minsky was an American cognitive scientist and computer scientist. He was a pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence, and co-founded the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AI laboratory. He was also a professor at MIT and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Minsky’s work focused on the development of computational models of human thought processes, and he was a major contributor to the field of cognitive science. He was an advocate for the development of strong artificial intelligence, believing that it could be used to solve many of the world’s problems.Minsky authored several books on artificial intelligence, including The Society of Mind, which proposed a theory of intelligence based on the idea that the mind is composed of a large number of simple processes. He also developed the concept of frames, which are used in AI to represent knowledge and provide a structure for reasoning. Minsky was a recipient of the Turing Award, the highest honor in computer science, and the Kyoto Prize, which is awarded
