However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
—A class of LISP programs that is analogous to the finite-state automata is defined, and an algorithm is given for constructing such programs from examples of their input-output behavior. It is shown that the algorithm has robust performance for a wide variety of inputs and that it converges to a solution on the basis of minimum input information.IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SYSTEMS, MAN, AND CYBERNETICS, VOL.
