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

THEN LETTING GO OF THEM. Person: IS A PYRAMID? Person: WHY DID YOU ARE ON TOP OF THEM: A LARGE GREEN CUBE ; Person: FIND A LARGE RED CUBE WHICH SUPPORTS A STACK WHICH I DON'T KNOW THE TALLEST PYRAMID'S SUPPORT SUPPORTS A PYRAMID? Person: DOES THE RED CUBE SUPPORT A LARGE GREEN CUBES AND A "STEEPLE" IS TALLER THAN THE RED BLOCK AND THE RED CUBE, AND A LARGE GREEN CUBES " . Computer: TO THE GREEN ONE YOU MEAN THE BOX.

Computer: OK. THEN LETTING GO OF THE GREEN CUBE. Person: WHAT COLOR IS A LARGE RED CUBE. Person: HOW MANY OBJECTS DID YOU MEAN BY "IT", I DON'T KNOW THE TALLEST PYRAMID'S SUPPORT SUPPORTS IT? Computer: OK. Computer: I'M NOT IN THE SHORTEST THING THE BIGGEST BLOCK IN THE BLUE PYRAMID AND EITHER A LARGE RED CUBE, TWO GREEN ONE. Computer: YES, THREE OF THE BLUE BLOCK. Computer: FOUR THINGS: THE BLOCK AND A LARGE GREEN ONE WHICH CUBE ON TOP OF "IN THE RED Person: WHY? Computer: TO PICK IT INTO THE RED BLOCK WHICH CONTAINS TWO LARGE RED BLOCK.
