This chapter focuses on one of the replacements of “good old-fashioned artificial intelligence” or GOFAI. Informed by personal experiences and encounters at MIT, the author tells of how he watched the symbol-processing approach degenerate, and how it was replaced by what he terms “Heideggerian AI,” a movement that began with the work of Rodney Brooks and colleagues.

Keywords:   artificial intelligence, Rodney Broks, GOFAI
