The talk of AI has invaded news outlets in the past year, leaving us to wonder how it will affect our future. AI (artificial intelligence) is not an up-and-coming concept; it has been around since the creation of computers. Artificial intelligence replicates human intelligence and hosts problem-solving capabilities. It differs from standard computers because it does not need a human to fix or improve processes; it is self-reliant. In 1950, AI started to form and was then named “Artificial Intelligence”. Prior names for AI were “automatons” and “robots”. According to Tableau, these three dates and contributions continued to propel AI further:
- 1950: Alan Turing published “Computer Machinery and Intelligence” which proposed a test of machine intelligence called The Imitation Game.
- 1952: A computer scientist named Arthur Samuel developed a program to play checkers, which is the first to ever learn the game independently.
- 1955: John McCarthy held a workshop at Dartmouth on “artificial intelligence” which is the first use of the word, and how it came into popular usage.
Those events were just the beginning of a whole new technology. Between 1950 and the present, AI has truly taken a whole new form of its own. As AI continues to grow and expand, many are wondering how it will impact our future – positively and negatively. Over the month of November, we will be stepping into the world of AI and how it affects SEO searches, marketing sales, and marketing creations.
