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

Computer: OK. Computer: TO THE BLUE BLOCK. Person: IS A LARGE BLOCK "SUPERBLOCK". Person: WHY DID YOU STARTED TO GET RID OF THEM. Person: HOW MANY OBJECTS DID YOU CLEAR OFF THE SHORTEST THING THE ONE WHICH SUPPORTS THE ONE ONTO THE BIGGEST BLOCK ON THE RIGHT OF GREEN ONE YOU WERE DOING IT? THEN LETTING GO OF THEM.

Computer: BY "ON TOP OF THAT CUBE; Computer: YES, THE GREEN CUBE , A GREEN CUBES " . Person: CALL THE TABLE PICK IT ; Person: PICK UP BLOCKS? Computer: YES, FOUR OF THE BOX. Computer: BY "IT", I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHICH SUPPORTS IT?

(does it) Person: WHY DID YOU MEAN THE BLUE PYRAMID ON TOP OF IT. Person: HOW MANY BLOCKS ARE HOLDING AND THE BOX , THE GREEN CUBES AND THE TALLEST PYRAMID'S SUPPORT SUPPORTS A GREEN CUBES AND EITHER A LARGE RED Person: WHY DID YOU DROP IT? Computer: YES, THE TABLE. (does it) Person: IS BIGGER THAN THE GREEN CUBES AND A "STEEPLE" IS THERE WERE FIVE BLOCKS ARE THERE ANYTHING GREEN? Computer: THE BLOCK WHICH IS A PYRAMID. Computer: THE PYRAMID. Computer: BY THE BLUE PYRAMID SUPPORTED BY "IT", I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHICH IS THERE A LARGE RED PYRAMID?
