Creator Of Lisp, John McCarthy, Dead At 84 (TechCrunch)

TechCrunch reports that John McCarthy has died. "McCarthy believed AI should be interactive, allowing for a give and take similar to AI simulators like Eliza and, more recently, Siri. His own labs were run in an open, free-wheeling fashion, encouraging exploration and argument. He won the Turing Award from the Association for Computing Machinery in 1972 and the National Medal of Science in 1991." (Thanks to Norman Gaywood)
