The major portion of the interview is concerned specifically with his work in robotics during the period 1966-1971. He describes the significance and relationship of this work to the larger field of AI, particularly the intellectual problems it addressed and the enabling technologies it helped develop. In the last section of the interview he gives a general impression of the changes over time (from the early 1960s to the early 1970s) in funding trends and research emphases in ARPA. He concludes with a short list of contributions to AI research that came out of ARPA-sponsored work during this period.
