A list of papers/books/materials I have failed to obtain, and financial bounties for anyone who can provide copies to me or the Internet.
created: 31 Dec 2018; modified: 18 Jun 2019; status: in progress; confidence: log; importance: 1
Sometimes in research, despite my best search techniques, I am unable to get a digital copy of a paper or book. This page lists my failures to date, and offers bounties for anyone who can get me a digital copy of them (often possible via a university ILL department, which are no longer accessible to me).
Unless otherwise specified, the current bounty is $10 for papers/theses/chapters & $20 for books/videos/miscellaneous; I can do Bitcoin, PayPal or Amazon gift cards most easily, other payment methods will be more work. (I may pay bounty+costs if not unreasonable or you contact me in advance with the total.)
To claim a bounty, contact me with the copy. (Payments are first-come-first served unless you contact me in advance so I can remove it from the list & avoid unnecessary duplication.)
Current count of filled bounties: 28.

Unknown title, survey article cited on “Integrated Cognitive Systems”, pg92 of On Machine Intelligence, Donald Michie:
How long is it likely to be before a machine can be developed approximating to adult human standards of intellectual performance? In a recent poll , thirty-five out of forty-two people engaged in this sort of research gave estimates between ten and one hundred years. There is also fair agreement that the chief obstacles are not hardware limitations.
