The birth of artificial intelligence (AI) was thought of by conventional theorists. They endeavored to explain the process of human way of thinking as the mechanical handling of descriptions. This work finished in the innovation of the programmable advanced computer in the 1940s. Devising a machine that is capable of dynamic scientific thinking.
John McCarthy (1927-2011) was an American computer scientist and cognitive scientist. He along with several other scientist were the “founding fathers” of artificial intelligence. Marvin Minsky, Allen Nowell and Herbert A. Simon were the co-founders. They assisted McCarthy in the ground-breaking steps of this cognitive science. McCarthy gave first breath in naming the term “artificial intelligence” in 1955.
McCarthy also organized the famous workshop, Dartmouth Conference in the Summer of 1956. The scholars who participated in this workshop, would turn into the pioneers of AI explorers for many years to come. A large number of them anticipated that a machine as smart as a human would exist in a short period of time. They were given millions of dollars to influence. Because of this conference, the artificial intelligence (AI) has now became a justifiable field of interest.
Take a second to think about the implications of the ever emergent, and proficient abilities AI will bring to our future. With the innovation of artificial intelligence in today’s world. We are, it is said, on the verge of an inflection point. For insistence, there are 1.7 million truck drivers that stand to lose their jobs when self-driving trucks become the norm. There will be an array of occupations made obsolete by the march of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
