Replica of AI Birthplace

In an office at Carnegie Mellon University, relics from the founding fathers of artificial intelligence aren't rotting away or collecting dust. Instead, they're put on show as part of an installation that takes the lifework of original AI scientists Allen Newell and Herbert Simon and brings it to life within the very technology they dedicated their lives to creating. Read more about the installation by Daniel Pillis, a former Posner intern who is now a visiting researcher and artist-in-residence at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute.

Pillis' installation is now closed, but you can still visit a virtually interactive experience of Newell and Simon's office space online here.
