The British logician and computer pioneer Alan Mathison Turing produced the first significant work on the subject of artificial intelligence in the middle of the 20th century.
John McCarthy is the father of Artificial Intelligence.
In 1951, the first AI programs were written. And they are a chess playing program by Dietrich Prinz and a checkers playing program by Christopher Strachey.
The primary purpose of AI is to create intelligent machines by studying human behaviour. Its main aim is to enable automation through which computers can work intelligently.
Researchers at the University of Oxford claim that artificial intelligence will be superior to humans at translating language, selling goods, writing essays for school, writing a best-selling book, and performing surgeries in the future.
