What is the history of AI?

As we see AI to be a gift and a futuristic revolution in modern times but few years back, big data intelligence was never considered as a novel Idea. Moving machines were termed as Automate where it resembled the actions of human and machine.

The calculating machines or analytical engines for centuries have been considered as the manipulation of mechanical symbols so that the human thinking process can be described as presented by classical philosophers before the first computers were invented.  

The Egyptian Amenhotep, from 15th century BC, the son of Hapu, constructed a statue of Memnon who was the King of Ethiopia near Egypt’s Thebes. Whenever it used to get struck by the sun rays, melodious sound was uttered in the morning or during sunset. The situation was described as a responsible act by some divine power since it’s too hard to believe that any sort of mechanisms was involved as they were designed simply.

In Ancient Greece, 8th Century BC, Iliad’s Verse XVIII was described by Homer as how the blacksmith god, Hephaestus, built the tripods from the God’s place where commutation was autonomous to his studio. Women in gold were also made by the same Hephaestus where they are able to work and talk and in daily tasks, they were too able to assist him. Ancient Greece from other texts mentioned that the talking heads were an Orpheus mask and to Lesbos, oracles were presented.  

Statues were articulated in Egypt at the same time were by steam and fire it was animated. Heads were shaking and their arms were moved.

Artificial intelligence was coined first time in 1956 by John McCarthy where he conducted his first academic conference. The invention can be called a journey with lots of futuristic inventions and adventures from across the world which started before 1956. A very debatable topic with lots of pros and cons. Even though it’s one of most attractive field where you are able to control, program and automated a machine which can think like a human body but the journey is along awaiting process with ups and downs and lots of failures.

In 1945, a system was proposed by Bush where people’s knowledge and understand was amplified. In 1950, Alan Turing, 5 years later published a paper based on the notion of machine that can simulate human beings to do things intelligently like playing chess.

In 1956, John McCarthy, invited researcher related to research topics like complexity theory, language simulation, neuron nets, content abstraction from sensory inputs, randomness relationship to creative thinking, machine learning.

In 1956, Dartmouth Artificial Intelligence gave birth to artificial intelligence field which led to many scientists in the potential of Information Technology for the benefit of human being meaningfully.
