some reading to catch up on

geb

the atlantic article about douglas hofstadter is a thought-provoking, illuminating discussion about the work that has been done in artificial intelligence | the difficulty of understanding & replicating human intelligence | and the divergence in thinking about how to study AI / GEB is one book that i have not made much progress with but this article has inspired me to make a go of it again
