To my surprise and great delight (and the hope that you won’t mind a bit of shameless self-promotion), i’ve discovered that Jocelyn Paine is reviewing some of my posts in the last issue of his nice AI Newsletter. In particular, if you liked Programmers go bananas, you’ll be interested in the links and comments of Jocelyn, which hint at what should (will?) be the second part i had in mind (actually, the real banana stuff). Besides, the newsletter has really interesting sections like the one devoted to robotics in functional languages and this other one full of links that will tell you how to do research.
Thanks a lot, Jocelyn.
