History of AI

The History of AI project examines the complex historical factors — social, political, technological and otherwise — that have shaped the development of intelligent systems during both the twentieth century and prior. The project convenes a diverse network of leading scholars from around the globe to interrogate questions related to themes such as justice, labour, economics, law, warfare, gender, race and materiality.
