Cognitive Scientist David Rumelhart Dies At 68 – Slashdot

While I was waiting in line at the post office this morning, I saw this post on slashdot.org: Cognitive Scientist David Rumelhart Dies At 68 – Slashdot. Rumelhart was on the forefront of modeling brain behavior with computers and developing the core concepts of neural net algorithms. There are obituaries of Rumelhart and remembrances of his work here and here. Also, check out his wikipedia article here.
