If you're an AI-newbie you must read some Rodney Brooks and if you're an old hand then you'll already know what to expect from Rodney. Often confrontational and always thought provoking Rodney makes you question some of the basic tennents of AI (at least some of the ones I was taught). Does this relate to CBR? Well, yes in that he argues for a behaviourist approach to AI in which all intelligence and action is not necessarily guided by explicit respresentations of knowledge, - but hey, being lazy learners we knew that already.


what was the previous recommendation?
