AI and AAAI are coevolving. As AI matures, its focus is shifting from inward-looking to outwardlooking. Some of the new concerns of the field are social awareness, networking, cross-disciplinarity, globalization, and open access. AAAI must reflect and support those concerns. AI is now a mature discipline.

The seeds of AI were sewn at the Dartmouth Conference in the summer of 1956. John McCarthy, then an assistant mathematics professor at Dartmouth, organized the conference and coined the name "artificial intelligence" in his conference proposal. This summer AAAI celebrates the first 50 years of AI; and continues to foster the fertile fields of AI at the National AI conference (AAAI-06) and Innovative Applications of AI conference (IAAI-06) in Boston.
