Reference to Intelligent Inspection Corporation?[edit]

I can't find any web references to Intelligent Inspection Corporation, and http://www.iictech.com/ is not operational today. Is it defunct? Matt Stan 13:51, 3 May 2004 (UTC)

It is probably inappropriate to associate Alan Turing exclusively with old-fashioned AI. His work on morphogenesis clearly indicates a sophistication that is missing from this article, especially in his later work.

Your comments are puzzling. First, this is an article about Brooks, not Turing. Second, Turing invented much of "old-fashioned" AI; associating him with its modern beginnings is quite reasonable. Third, Turing's work on morphogenesis is not relevant to an article about AI, let alone an article about Brooks. Finally, Turing is mentioned in the article to provide historic context, which I believe is both accurate and relevant. The reference in no way impugns him.

Added cleanup tag[edit]

I added a 'prose' tag because most of this important article is in bullet form.

Link Dead[edit]

The .pdf file in the introductory paragraph is dead. Should be fixed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Glench (talkcontribs) 22:07, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
