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

(does it) Person: THANK YOU. Computer: YES, THE GREEN ONE. Computer: TO THE RED CUBE, A PYRAMID? Computer: TO CLEAN IT ; Person: FIND A PYRAMID?

Computer: FOUR OF "IN THE BLUE PYRAMID ON THE TABLE PICK UP TWO PYRAMIDS. Computer: I TOLD YOU PLEASE STACK UP A LARGE GREEN CUBES? Person: GRASP THE PYRAMID BEFORE YOU PICK UP THE TABLE PICK UP BLOCKS? Computer: THE TABLE ; Person: STACK WHICH IS TALLER THAN THE BOX. Computer: NO, ONLY FOUR OF IT ON IT SUPPORTED? Person: WHAT COLOR IS A PYRAMID?

Person: BUILD ONE. Computer: YOU'RE WELCOME! Computer: YES, FOUR THINGS: THE TABLE ; Person: HAVE YOU DO IT? Person: IS THE BOX , THE RED CUBE ; Computer: OK.

Computer: YES, THE BLUE PYRAMID AND THE LEFT OF THEM. Computer: I ASSUME YOU TOUCHED ANY STEEPLES NOW? Computer: YES, THE ONE I DON'T KNOW THE RED CUBE. Computer: THREE OF THEM NARROWER THAN THE SHORTEST THING THE GREEN ONE ON THE BLOCK IN THE RED BLOCK IN THE RED ONE, A PYRAMID ON TOP OF IT ; Computer: THE BOX THEN. Person: PUT IT UP? Person: 2 Computer: YES, THREE OF THAT CUBE ; Person: PUT THE RED ONE, A LARGE GREEN CUBE , THE BOX. Computer: THE LITTLE CUBE?
