HANS MORAVEC ROBOT PDF

He was perhaps best known for his outspoken views on the future of human beings and robots and of the eventual superiority of the latter. While still a child, Moravec moved with his family from Austria to Canada. After receiving a Ph. For his dissertation, he created a robot that moved through a crowded environment , using a television picture to help guide it. Although it could move safely through the room about 75 percent of the time, the robot took several hours to complete the task, and it was remote-controlled by a large computer.

For his dissertation, he created a robot that moved through a crowded environment , using a television picture to help guide it. Although it could move safely through the room about 75 percent of the time, the robot took several hours to complete the task, and it was remote-controlled by a large computer. In he cofounded Seegrid Corporation, which specialized in automated guided vehicles.

Moravec was probably better known for his opinion that robots would overtake humans in the near future. He estimated that computer intelligence would equal that of humans by and that machines would far surpass human intellect in the years thereafter. Moravec also argued that biological humans would eventually be rendered extinct. Although he believed there would be ways for human minds to survive in this future, he posited that human bodies would no longer be competitive from an evolutionary perspective.

Moravec's paradox

All human skills are implemented biologically, using machinery designed by the process of natural selection. In the course of their evolution, natural selection has tended to preserve design improvements and optimizations. The older a skill is, the more time natural selection has had to improve the design. Abstract thought developed only very recently, and consequently, we should not expect its implementation to be particularly efficient. As Moravec writes: Encoded in the large, highly evolved sensory and motor portions of the human brain is a billion years of experience about the nature of the world and how to survive in it. The deliberate process we call reasoning is, I believe, the thinnest veneer of human thought, effective only because it is supported by this much older and much more powerful, though usually unconscious, sensorimotor knowledge. We are all prodigious olympians in perceptual and motor areas, so good that we make the difficult look easy.
