Moravec's paradox: Consideration in the context of two brain hemisphere functions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

According to Moravec's paradox contrary to traditional assumptions, high-level reasoning requires very little computation compared to low-level sensorimotor skills that require enormous computational resources. For example, it is possible to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, but extremely difficult or impossible to give them the skills like perception or mobility. Several findings suggest that explanation of Moravec's paradox is related to the different functions of the human left and right hemispheres.
