Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly transforming how we work, live, interact and generally exist. During World War II, Alan Turing, the brilliant computer scientist, cracked a code that German forces were using to send messages securely. The British scientist created a machine that could interact with humans where it was completely unknown whether one was talking to a human or a machine. This eventually led to an Allied forces victory, and in 1956 at a scientific conference at Dartmouth College, the term AI was first adopted. The race has been on from there.
Now, AI did not develop unobstructed since World War II. During the mid-1970s scientists worldwide began facing shortages in funding for AI research. This however did not last for simply a handful of years. It lasted nearly 20 years! Computers were not developed enough to process large amounts of data, and because AI requires constant learning in the form of more [...]
