Introduction The Death of Behaviorism and the
Rise of the Machine
Rise Concepts of Behaviorism
All behavior can be explained without considering internal or mental
All behavior is learned from the environment.
All behavior is caused by external stimulus-response. Limitations of Behaviorism
Theories failed to converge on natural language.
Theories ignored the inference of mental states.
Theories were too simplistic for the complexities of human thought
The Cognitive Model

1956- Alan Newell and Herbert Simon announce Nat Rochester and
collaborators used the worlds largest computer (IBM 704) to play
