Situated Cognition: On Human Knowledge and Computer Representationsby William J. Clancey, Roy Pea, Seely Brown
Pub. Date: 08/28/1997
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Situated Cognition focuses on recent changes in the design of intelligent machines. This book differs from other purely philosophical treatises in that Clancey--an insider who has built expert systems for twenty years-- explores the limitations of existing computer programs and compares them to human memory and learning capabilities. Clancey examines the implications of 'situated action' from the perspective of artificial intelligence specialists interested in building robots.
