Artificial intelligence pioneer says we need to start over

To supplement Professor Brynjolfsson's previous post, classmate Ahmed Bilal has just sent this quick look at Geoff Hinton, pioneer of AI development, who now expresses hesitations about his brainchild. Here's a key paragraph from the piece, "Artificial intelligence pioneer says we need to start over":
Other scientists at the conference said back-propagation still has a core role in AI's future. But Hinton said that, to push materially ahead, entirely new methods will probably have to be invented. "Max Planck said, 'Science progresses one funeral at a time.' The future depends on some graduate student who is deeply suspicious of everything I have said."
