    Artificial Intelligence

  • "cybernetics"

    "cybernetics"
    Arturo Rosenblueth, Norbert Wiener and Julian Bigelow coin the term "cybernetics". Wiener's popular book by that name published in 1948
  • "A Logical Calculus of the Ideas Immanent in Nervous Activity"

    "A Logical Calculus of the Ideas Immanent in Nervous Activity"
    Warren Sturgis McCulloch and Walter Pitts publish "A Logical Calculus of the Ideas Immanent in Nervous Activity" (1943), laying foundations for artificial neural networks.
  • Three laws of Robotics

    Three laws of Robotics
    The Three Laws of Robotics, often shortened to The Three Laws or Three Laws, are a set of three rules written by science fiction author Isaac Asimov and later expanded upon.
  • Turing Test

    Turing Test
    Alan Turing proposes the Turing Test as a measure of machine intelligence.

    Game Playing
  • Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial Intelligence
    The name artificial intelligence is used for the first time as the topic of the second Dartmouth Conference, organized by John McCarthy
  • AI

    AI
    The first demonstration of the Logic Theorist (LT) written by Allen Newell, J.C. Shaw and Herbert Simon (Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon University). This is often called the first AI program, though Samuel's checkers program also has a strong claim.
  • Lisp Programing

    John McCarthy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology or MIT) invented the Lisp programming language.
  • MIT AI Lab

    John McCarthy and Marvin Minsky founded the MIT AI Lab.
  • Math Theory of AI

  • Unimation

  • ANALOGY

  • Understnading

    Danny Bobrow's dissertation at MIT (technical report #1 from MIT's AI group, Project MAC), shows that computers can understand natural language well enough to solve algebra word problems correctly.
  • ELIZA

  • Reasoning

    Dendral program (Edward Feigenbaum, Joshua Lederberg, Bruce Buchanan, Georgia Sutherland at Stanford University) demonstrated to interpret mass spectra on organic chemical compounds. First successful knowledge-based program for scientific reasoning.
  • MacHack

    Richard Greenblatt (programmer) at MIT built a knowledge-based chess-playing program, MacHack, that was good enough to achieve a class-C rating in tournament play.
  • Conference on AI
