Marvin Minsky ( The Society of the Mind ), was one of the foremost authorities on artificial intelligence research, had many interesting ideas about the potential and pitfalls of the quest for a truly free-thinking machine, and some of them come through in this murky, creaky thriller, written with veteran science fiction author Harry Harrison.
