Thanks! I've read your very interesting paper, and am in fact working on writing a kind of review paper on different approaches to analogy and abstraction. I'll send you a draft when it's done.

Glad to see AI journalism making the leap from 2nd-hand PR to investigative reporting. put in the work here (we first spoke over a month ago) to give a balanced and critical perspective on OpenAI and other corporate players (ostensibly) in the AGI game.

The original "physical symbol system hypothesis" paper was better : but I always found the idea to be vague & hard to nail down. Just like "deep learning", symbolic AI was never well defined, and people argued a lot about definitions.

Indeed, LISP was very influential in people's thinking about symbolic AI. For example, Allen Newell described his "paradigmatic symbol system" as a "Lisp-ish kind of beast".
