        Steps Toward Artificial Intelligence" in Proceedings of the IRE, Vol. 49, No. 1, 1961, pp. 8-30

      Institute of Radio Engineers, New York 1961 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPPERS OF MINSKY'S "SEMINAL" WORK ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (MIT Biography). In this paper, Minsky outlines the basic features of AI programs that today still form the basis of artificial solving, including searching and pattern-recognition techniques. This work established symbol manipulation - divided into heuristic search, pattern recognition, learning, planning, and induction - to be at the center of any attempt at understanding intelligence (A.C.M. Statement of Minsky's achievements). Marvin Minsky was a pioneer of robotics and tele-presence who designed and built some of the first visual scanners, mechanical hands with tactile sensors, one of the first LOGO 'turtles', and their software and hardware interfaces - works that influenced many subsequent robotic projects. This 1961 work by Minsky surveyed and analyzed what had been done before and outlined many major problems that the infant discipline of artificial intelligence would later need to face. This paper "reveals a remarkable catalogue of techniques that had been developed in less than a decade's worth of research, [including] "basic forms of search, evaluation, and learning, but also the beginnings of a model of intelligence and a way that programs could begin to 'understand' their own behavior. Minsky ended the paper with a look toward a future where time-sharing and multiprocessing programs would provide easier access to a growing amount of computing power" (Henderson, Artificial Intelligence, 63). CONDITION AND DETAILS: New York: Institute of Radio Engineers. 4to. Original printed wrappers with scuffs and edge wear; short closed tears at spine tips and on the contents page. Library stamp on front cover and contents page; no other library markings. Very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Through a Glass Darkly [Såsom i en spegel] (Original art style poster for the 1961 film)

      Svensk Filmindustri, Stockholm 1961 - Original Swedish illustrated poster for the 1961 Swedish film. The first entry in Bergman's legendary and highly personal "Faith" trilogy, which won the director his second Best Foreign Film Oscar, and defined what came to be called his "chamber dramas." A young woman is released from a mental institution, and moves to an island where her family resides to recover. But she finds little solace, and no support from her father, her husband, or her brother. A landmark film, in that it is not so much an examination into mental illness as a perspective of on a private world from a mind that has departed day to day concerns.27.5 x 38.5 inches. Lightly restored, linen-backed and rolled. Near Fine.

        Through a Glass Darkly [Såsom i en spegel] (Original photo style poster for the 1961 film)

      Stockholm: Svensk Filmindustri, 1961. Original Swedish photographic style poster for the 1961 Swedish film. The first entry in Bergman's legendary and highly personal "Faith" trilogy, which won the director his second Best Foreign Film Oscar, and defined what came to be called his "chamber dramas." A young woman is released from a mental institution, and moves to an island where her family resides to recover. But she finds little solace, and no support from her father, her husband, or her brother. A landmark film, in that it is not so much an examination into mental illness as a perspective of on a private world from a mind that has departed day to day concerns.27.5 x 39.5 inches, linen-backed. Lightly restored, linen-backed and rolled. Near Fine.
