Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) pioneer Edward Feigenbaum discusses the origins and development of AI as an experimental science in the mid-1950s to current AI technologies such as Apple Siri. Feigenbaum is the world's leading authority on expert systems, AI programs that seek to embed human thought processes and knowledge into computer systems. Feigenbaum also addresses the differences in AI's two main research directions, viz. the inference and knowledge base approaches, and how these have interacted over the last five decades.
