Charles Gillingham

A lead sheet


I have retired from working on Wikipedia, except to stop by to maintain the articles from time to time.

I was the main author of a number of major articles about artificial intelligence, including Artificial intelligence, History of artificial intelligence, Philosophy of artificial intelligence, Chinese Room, AI Winter and Dreyfus' critique of artificial intelligence. I also added articles about several related subjects, such as Logic Theorist, Nathaniel Rochester (computer scientist), Johns Hopkins Beast, Moravec's paradox, Physical symbol system, Strategic Computing Initiative, Synthetic intelligence. I have contributed to many other articles about AI and technology.

I also wrote large parts of Music industry, Radio promotion, Artists and repertoire, and others about the music industry.

I created {{sfn}} and wrote (most of) the documentation for the {{harv}} family of templates.

My favorite contribution appears in Lead sheet, where I recorded a short theme for Wikipedia. I had hoped that it would catch on, but this never happened.

Just read a few articles in philosophy of AI and was impressed by their quality (though the general one needs work, by now). I'm an academic working in that field. - Thank you! Antepali (talk) 14:50, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Biographical Information[edit]

I am Charlie Gillingham, the keyboardist for Counting Crows, so you could say I have an interest in music and the recording industry.

I am also a former Artificial Intelligence software engineer and manager and so I have an interest in artificial intelligence, philosophy, cognitive science, neurology, computer science and the software industry.

I have a special interest in the history of ideas: scientific, religious and philosophical.
