A Dartmouth press release claims AI turns 50 this year. No doubt you're already asking, don't they mean AI research turns 50? Yes, they do. Your next question is probably, doesn't AI research go back way further than 50 years? Yes, it does. What Dartmouth is actually celebrating is the 50th anniversary of the "Dartmouth Summer Research Project on Artificial Intelligence" in 1956. They're holding a conference called AI@50 in July to ponder how far AI research has come and where it's going. Several speakers from the original 1956 conference including Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy will be returning to speak at the AI@50 conference.
