Marvin Lee Minsky, (August 9, 1927 - January 24, 2016 [1])
was an American mathematician, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence. Along with John McCarthy, he co-founded the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's AI laboratory. In 1951, Minsky built the first randomly wired neural network [2] learning machine, SNARC, and in 1969, along with Seymour Papert authored Perceptrons, which became the foundational work in the analysis of artificial neural networks [3], also refered as the abandonment of connectionism, a controversy in the history of AI concerning the Perceptron and its main researcher Frank Rosenblatt [4].
