AI in the 1970s

Very interesting debate about AI in the 1970s. I was impressed by what they could achieve in the 70s with primitive computers. Michie demonstrates a robot that can assemble toy cars. It is amazing they could pull off such vision analysis with those TV cameras.

It seems the Lighthill report caused UK Govt. to withdraw funding of AI research. Did Lighthill make a mistake and kill off AI progress in the UK? Could they have achieved more progress if funding continued?
