TITLE: Chippy's Recovery

AI has learned this: reality does not come in a nice neat bundle of well-defined entities and behaviors as in chess or blocks worlds. Yet our programs tend to be modeled on neat bundles and so encounter the brittleness problem: they break in the face of even slight deviations from anticipated circmumstances. Our work on the brittleness problem has led to a methodology we call the metacognitive loop (MCL). I will discuss various background ideas, a reformulation of the problem, and how MCL is being used to address it.
