Artificial intelligence over the yearsEdit

The field of artificial intelligence has growth over a period of more than sixty years and machines still can't emulate human thought processes. The table below shows some significant milestones that occurred along the way. Due to the nature of the book, detailed information about each interval might serve the pages of yet another book on the WikiBook shelf regarding the history of AI.
