Artificial Intelligence: Technology with a Future

Artificial Intelligence (AI), defined as “the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by men” (Minsky), took on a viable scientific meaning as a modern Computer Science (CS) discipline during the second half of the 20th century. It was the direct result of the convergence of various intellectual currents (Theory of Computation, Cybernetics, Information Theory, Symbolic Processing, Psychology,...), which had developed from the formal bases of Logic and Discrete Mathematics and had been given impetus by the development of digital computers. AI represents a serious effort to understand the complexity of human experience in information processing terms. It deals not only with how to represent and use complex and incomplete information logically, but also with questions of how to see (vision), move (robotics), communicate (natural language, speech), learn, etc.
