I was quite shocked, because I was kind of counting on him: he was the most brilliant AI researcher I ever heard of, someone I thought I will continue to learn from & follow for a long time. Push was the guy that I believed will build the actual real strong AI. I didn’t know him personally, yet always felt that this is an especially important & great person. I’m really sad I didn’t had to chance to get to know him. I really feel for the persons who did know him, because he was such a good person.
I must try find a way to comemorate him, besides the obvious use of his work, e.g. the Open Mind project, ConceptNet & the EM-ONE architecture.
Thanks & goodbye, Push
