An interview by Yarden Katz

Copies of Aspects of the Theory of Syntax at MIT Hayden

On April 9, 2012, I sat with Noam Chomsky to talk about his view of artificial intelligence (AI) and where the field is going. The conversation was inspired in part by Chomsky's criticism of AI at the MIT symposium on Brains, Minds, and Machines, organized by MIT's Intelligence Initiative.

Along the way, we discussed the future of neuroscience and the connections between AI and the biological sciences. The full interview is available at The Atlantic: Noam Chomsky on Where Artificial Intelligence Went Wrong

Below are some selected video clips and photographs from the interview.
