HairBolus: Wilensky was one of the foot-soldiers in the over hyping of Artificial Intelligence that lead to a boom and then the late 80s early 90s AI winter where terms like AI and "expert system" became dirty words. The problem was that funding agencies were impressed by brittle ad hoc toy examples that wound up not extendable to robust and useful systems and the incredible amount of bullshiat that promoted them.Note that his obituary doesn't mention any scientific achievements (e.g. methods, algorithms, or theorems named after him).Wilensky was mainly a hustler, not a scientist.
