Description:
Landing a 5000 pound package on Mars that would spend a year looking for life and making other measurements has been proposed. We believe that this machine should be a stored program computer with sense and motor organs and that the machine should be mobile. We discuss the following points: 1. Advantages of a computer controlled system. 2. What the computer should be like. 3. What we can feasible do given the present state of work on artificial intelligence. 4. A plan for carrying out research in computer controlled experiments that will make the Mars machine as effective as possible.
