MOVING TO FRONT--ORIGINALLY POSTED APRIL 22
He spent most of his career at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was emeritus. Best-known for his interpretations of Heidegger and Foucault, as well as his (Heidegger-informed) critiques of artificial intelligence, he trained many prominent scholars in the field during his roughly half-century of teaching at Berkeley. I will add links to memorial notices as they appear.
UPDATE: Here's Dreyfus (many years ago) talking with Bryan Magee about Husserl and Heidegger. (Magee gives a nice introduction to Husserlian phenomenology too!)
ANOTHER: Prof. Dreyfus's twitter account notes his passing. (Thanks to Ed Barreras, a former student of Prof. Dreyfus, for the pointer.)
AND ANOTHER: This from the Berkeley Department:
It is with deep sadness that we record the death of Prof. Hubert Dreyfus, who passed away on April 22, 2017. Bert had been a member of the Berkeley philosophy department since 1968, and he will long be remembered by us for his groundbreaking work on Heidegger, his extraordinary teaching and mentoring, and his unswerving commitment to the welfare of our students. We are happy that he was able to carry on with all aspects of his work right up to the end, and the intellectual openness and sense of excitement which pervaded his teaching will continue to serve as an inspiration for us.
There will be a memorial event from 9.30-11.30 on Wednesday, May 24 at Alumni House on the Berkeley campus. The event is open to everyone, and you are warmly invited to attend.

IN ADDITION: A charming personal remembrance from Robert Paul Wolff. (Thanks to Matt Lister for the pointer.)
