Artificial Intelligence: The Birth and The Growth

#artificialintelligence

Dartmouth Conference, held in 1956, by one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence, an American computer scientist, John McCarthy, opened the gates of research and opportunities in the field of artificial intelligence. What started as the joint effort of almost 20 people present at the conference, turned into the passion and obsession of many people, entering the field of science and technology. These people were the ones that made distant future, a part of the present, through artificial intelligence. As a result of their dedication, artificial intelligence was developed gradually, from the early 1960's to the present day. The early 1960's introduced us to the most basic machines, which could perform the simple tasks assigned to them.

This blog will take a thorough dive into the timeline of AI, beginning from the very start, the 1940s. The term "Artificial Intelligence" was first coined by the father of AI, John McCarthy in 1956. But the revolution of AI began a few years in advance, i.e. the 1940's. Around 37% of industries have implemented AI in some form, which is a 270% increase for the past 4 years. AI has taken multiple forms over the years.


The History of Artificial Intelligence - Science in the News

It began with the "heartless" Tin man from the Wizard of Oz and continued with the humanoid robot that impersonated Maria in Metropolis. By the 1950s, we had a generation of scientists, mathematicians, and philosophers with the concept of artificial intelligence (or AI) culturally assimilated in their minds. One such person was Alan Turing, a young British polymath who explored the mathematical possibility of artificial intelligence. Turing suggested that humans use available information as well as reason in order to solve problems and make decisions, so why can't machines do the same thing? This was the logical framework of his 1950 paper, Computing Machinery and Intelligence in which he discussed how to build intelligent machines and how to test their intelligence.


A Very Short History of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

In an expanded edition published in 1988, they responded to claims that their 1969 conclusions significantly reduced funding for neural network research: "Our version is that progress had already come to a virtual halt because of the lack of adequate basic theories… by the mid-1960s there had been a great many experiments with perceptrons, but no one had been able to explain why they were able to recognize certain kinds of patterns and not others."
