Subject: source of a Minsky-ism?
I would be very grateful to anyone who could tell me where Marvin Minsky
says that the brain (or mind) is essentially a modelling machine. (I don't
need him saying, more famously, that "the brain is a machine made of meat".
Both statements have an equal amount of truth to them, but the former suits
my present purpose much better.)
