Neural Networks and the Emergence of Cognition

This is a fascinating conversation between Jay McClelland and Lex Fridman on the history of the PDP group and connectionist models of cognitive neuroscience.  

Jay was one of the authors of the famous PDP (Parallel Distributed Processing) book from the 1980s (that came with associated code so you could run the models themselves) that really helped jump-start the connectionist revolution in cognitive neuroscience as well as introduced the back propagation algorithm for training neural nets to the computer science community.
