Even though artificial intelligence, or AI for short, is the buzz phrase today for practically everyone in the world, this brief but informative & accurate timeline illustrates that there is nothing new about AI. In fact, it predates the invention of the personal computer by more than two decades. The advancements made in AI are progressing at an exponential rate leveraging our ever faster computing power, the explosion of digital data and the speed of communications structures. In many ways, the commercialization of AI has only just begun and it will profoundly affect our world as we know it, similarly or perhaps more profoundly than the Internet and mobile phone had done so before. |
