Abstract:

Landing a 5000 pound package on Mars that would spend a year looking for life and making other measurements has been proposed. It is believed that this machine should be a stored program computer with sense and motor organs, and that the machine should be mobile. The author discusses the following points: Advantages of a computer controlled system; what the computer should be like; what we can feasibly program the machine to do given the present state of work on artificial intelligence; and, a plan for carrying out research in computer controlled experiments that will make the Mars machine as effective as possible. (Modified author abstract).
