Abstract


The seeds of AI were sewn at the Dartmouth Conference in the summer of 1956. John McCarthy, then an assistant mathematics professor at Dartmouth, organized the conference and coined the name "artificial intelligence" in his conference proposal. This summer AAAI celebrates the first 50 years of AI; and continues to foster the fertile fields of AI at the National AI conference (AAAI-06) and Innovative Applications of AI conference (IAAI-06) in Boston.
