Encyclopedia > Lighthill report

The Lighthill report (1973) "formed the basis for the decision by the British government to end support for AI research in all but two universities [from AIAMA]." The report stated that AI researchers had failed to address the issue of combinatorial explosion when solving problems within real world domains. That is, the report states that AI techniques may work within the scope of small problem domains, but the techniques would not scale up well to solve more realistic problems. The report represents a pessimistic view of AI that began after early excitment in the field.
