Building the Second Mind: 1956 and the Origins of Artificial Intelligence Computing

Abstract

Building the Second Mind: 1956 and the Origins of Artificial Intelligence Computing tells the history of the origins of AI. As the field that seeks to do things that would be considered intelligent if a human being did them, AI is a constant of human thought. Yet it was impossible until the digital computer was invented during WWII, and the field itself was not declared until 1956.
