Video Title: Discussion of and Demonstrations of Learning Programs for Robots
Description: The first half of the film is a lecture by Marvin Minsky describing the basic ideas of Patrick Winston's learning program, using examples and "near misses" to refine the program's model of what an "arch" is. The second half of the film is a narration by Dave Waltz describing other robotics research at MIT. He discusses Tim Finin's program that uses Winston-like models to recognize objects that match the model even when parts of the object are obscured. It uses hypotheses about dimensions of the objects that it can not directly observe.
