Made-Up Minds: A Constructivist Approach to Artificial Intelligenceby Gary L. Drescher
Pub. Date: 07/15/1991
Publisher: MIT Press
Made-Up Minds addresses fundamental questions of learning and concept invention by means of an innovative computer program that is based on the cognitive-developmental theory of psychologist Jean Piaget. Drescher uses Piaget's theory as a source of inspiration for the design of an artificial cognitive system called the schema mechanism and then uses the system to elaborate and test Piaget's theory. The approach is original enough that readers need not have extensive knowledge of artificial intelligence, and a chapter summarizing Piaget's work assists readers who lack a background in developmental psychology.
