The development history of artificial intelligence (AI)

The development history of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a journey spanning decades, from theoretical explorations to a core branch of today’s technology. The following is a brief overview of the development history of AI:
Early Explorations (1940-1956):
1943: Warren McCulloch and Walter Pitts publish the first model of an analog neural network.
1950: Alan Turing publishes the famous “Turing Test”, a method for evaluating machine intelligence.
1956: John McCarthy, Marvin Minsky, Nathan Rochester and Claude Shannon introduce the term “artificial intelligence” at the Dartmouth Conference.
The “Golden Age” and the first AI winter (1956-1974):
This period saw the initial research and development of AI, such as early attempts at expert systems and machine learning.
However, funding and interest began to wane due to the huge gap between high expectations and actual results, leading to the first AI winter.
Second AI Winter (1974-1980):
Due to technical and theoretical limitations, as well as a lack of computing power, AI research once again fell into a slump.
Revival and Scale-up (1980-2011):
In the 1980s, the field of AI was revitalized with the commercial success of expert systems and increased computing power.
In 1997, IBM’s Deep Blue became a landmark event when it defeated chess champion Garry Kasparov.
In the 2000s, with the rise of the internet and big data, AI technology began to be used in a wide range of industries.
The Rise of Modern AI (2011-present):
In 2011, IBM’s Watson demonstrated the vast potential of machine learning and natural language processing when it beat a human contestant on the show Edge of Danger.
The development of deep learning, especially the breakthrough of convolutional neural networks in image recognition and speech recognition, has greatly advanced AI technology.
AI is now widely used in fields such as self-driving cars, medical diagnostics, financial services, and customer service, and continues to evolve toward more advanced cognitive functions.
The development of AI is a process full of ups and downs, accompanied by technological advances, theoretical breakthroughs, and changing market demands. Today, AI is in a stage of rapid development, with its potential and applications wider than ever before.
