Historical Overview of AI

Only the term Artificial Intelligence (AI) is new but the concept of AI is not new, It was started centuries ago.

The beginnings of Modern AI can be traced to classical philosophers' attempts to describe human thinking as a symbolic system.

But the field of AI wasn't formally founded until 1956, at a conference at Dartmouth College, in Hanover, New Hampshire, where the term "artificial intelligence " was coined.
