This video is shot in an oral history style, with a single camera focused on Marvin Minsky, who stands against a white background. Minsky discusses his general ideas on scientific thought, and explains how he turned to artificial intelligence as a discipline (after starting out in genetics, physics, and mathematics). In his own words, "There is no point in doing anything if somebody else does it better."
