Artificial intelligence: What was the first in the world?

The artificial intelligence It is an impressive topic that we have already talked about several times in this blog. As we want to continue delving into it, today we would like to share with you about the origin of artificial intelligence and what was the first that existed in the world. Since when does this concept exist? Is it something new for the 21st century or is it possible to go further back in history? Do not detach from the screen because we will reveal all that and more in the next few lines.

Generally when we think of artificial intelligence we imagine futuristic robots made with the latest technology. However, to get to the point where AI is today, we have had to go through a long process dating back to 300 BC.

How did artificial intelligence originate?

As we just mentioned, and according to information from Agency B12, artificial intelligence dates back to 300 BC in the time of Aristotle. This was the first to discover that a set of rules in a structured way, called syllogisms, exists.

“The syllogism is an argument in which two judgments, the so-called premises, are obtained through the common concept (middle term) contained in both premises, a new judgment, deduction or conclusion. The most general form of a syllogism is constructed according to this type: 'All men are mortal. Juan is a man. Therefore, Juan is mortal ”, according to Philosophy.

Later, in 250 BC, Ctesibius of Alexandria built the first self-controlled machine. It consisted of a water regulator that modified its own operation. It is not until the year 1637 of our era that René Descartes, an influential philosopher of the 17th century, predicted that one day machines would be created that could think for themselves.

In 1847, the mathematician George Boole established that logical reasoning is possible to systematize it, in the same way that a mathematical equation is solved.

However, computing and technology would not be what they are today without Allan Turing, who is known as one of the fathers of information technology.

In 1936, he introduced the concept of the algorithm through an article entitled "Computing machinery and intelligence." Hence the Turing Test, which is a verbal communication test that evaluates the ability of a technology to impersonate a human being.

  • Robots will not be able to harm human beings.
  • The robots will carry out the designated orders.
  • Robots will protect their own existence as long as it does not conflict with the first or second law proposed above.

What is the first artificial intelligence job in history?

It is a model of artificial neurons presented in 1943 by Warren McCulloch and Walter Pitts. Anyway, it is not until 1956 that the term artificial intelligence as such was born by John McCarthy, Marvin Minsky and Claude Shannon.

The three scientists hypothesized that in the future artificial intelligence could coexist with human beings on a daily basis.

In 1957 the first artificial neural network was created and in 1966 the first chatbot called ELIZA was born. It was a project that took place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, and was developed by Joseph Weizenbaum.

Starting in the 1990s, AI gained momentum and technologies such as Deep Blue emerged, a computer that could beat world champion Gari Kasparov in a game of chess.

Starting in the 21st century, we have seen incredible advances in artificial intelligence. Some protagonists have been Google and IBM.

Today some advances in artificial intelligence can be mentioned, such as:

  • Digital assistants.
  • Automated responses.
  • Autonomous vehicles.
  • Image classification.
  • Converting text to dialogue and vice versa.
