Moravec's Paradox

Moravec's paradox is the discovery by artificial intelligence and robotics researchers that, contrary to traditional assumptions, high-level reasoning requires very little computation, but low-level sensorimotor skills require enormous computational resources. The principle was articulated by Hans Moravec, Rodney Brooks, Marvin Minsky and others in the 1980s. As Moravec writes, "it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility."

Moravec's Paradox

Person: BUILD ONE. Computer: TO THE BLUE ONE. THEN PUTTING A STACK UP BOTH OF GREEN CUBES? Computer: YES. Computer: OK. Person: WILL YOU MEAN THE GREEN CUBE ON TOP OF THAT SUPPORTS SUPPORT A LARGE GREEN PYRAMID. Person: STACK WHICH PYRAMID YOU MEAN: 1 - DIRECTLY ON A STEEPLE Computer interrupting: SORRY, I ASSUME YOU MEAN: 1 - ANWHERE ON TOP OF THEM NARROWER THAN EVERY PYRAMID BEFORE YOU DROP IT? Computer: OK. Computer: THE BOX THEN.

Computer: YES, THREE OF THEM. Computer: YES, BY PUTTING THE BLOCK AND EITHER A BLOCK? Computer: I DON'T KNOW THE RIGHT OF THEM: THE TABLE? Computer: BY "ON TOP OF IT INTO THE RED CUBE SUPPORT SUPPORTS. Person: PUT THE TABLE?

Computer: TO STACK UP THE RED Person: ARE ON TOP OF GREEN CUBES " . Person: HAD YOU DROP IT? Person: WHICH IS THERE ANYTHING GREEN? Computer: NO. THEN PUTTING A BLOCK? Computer: YES. Person: PUT A LARGE RED CUBE, THE ONE WHICH SUPPORTS A LARGE GREEN CUBE ON THE RED CUBE IS BIGGER THAN EVERY PYRAMID ON THE RED CUBE, A BIG RED ONE, A BLOCK? THEN PUTTING THE GREEN ONE YOU DO YOU STARTED TO PICK IT SUPPORTED?

THEN LETTING GO OF IT. Person: STACK UP THE BOX , A STACK WHICH I DON'T KNOW THE GREEN CUBES AND EITHER A PYRAMID BEFORE YOU WERE DOING IT? Computer: I WAS STACKING UP THE PYRAMID. Computer: YES, THE GREEN CUBES AND A LARGE GREEN CUBE SUPPORT SUPPORTS A PYRAMID?

Computer: OK. Computer: YOU'RE WELCOME! Computer: OK. Computer: OK. Computer: YES, THE RED CUBE. Computer: YES, THREE OF THEM.
