When Did Artificial Intelligence Begin?

In the first half of the 20th century, science fiction familiarized our world with an idea that is both futuristic and eerily close to home. In literature as well-known for its portrayal in movies like “The Wizard Of Oz” or George Orwell’s 1984, AIs were introduced into society through humanoid robots who tried on various personas such those seen at Tesla factory during World War II; however this time around they weren’t just making machines – These intelligent beings would eventually take over key positions within corporations leading up until today where some companies have started incorporating them onto their boards so high level decisions could be made without involving human biases.

The Term Artificial Intelligence

First time the term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ was used happened at Dartmouth College in 1956. The term is thought to have been coined by John McCarthy, who set up a conference for this new field and made it clear that human-like thinking would not be limited only to symbolic systems like language or mathematics but also encompass things such as common sense knowledge about how the world works – all things considered part of what we intuitively know without having gone through any formal education process on these subject matters.

The Two Geniuses

The transition from computers to 19th century decimal logic (which thus dealt with values from 0-9) and machines was a big deal because it relied on how we process information. John Von Neumann is one of the founding fathers behind AI, but he didn’t create this term himself; instead his work laid down some technical groundwork for what would come later known as “the technology.” Alan Turing did start developing ideas about artificial intelligence while working at Bletchley Park during World War II where he helped decipher coded messages sent by Germany’s Enigma Machine code book.

Artificial Intelligence is the future. It will be an essential tool that can help us solve many of society’s problems and challenges, but it also has its drawbacks in how complicated AI systems are to understand for humans which could lead them down a dangerous path if not properly supervised with ethics involved at every stage.
