  • Universal Language

    Universal Language
    During the 17th and 18th centuries, philosophers like Descartes, Hobbes, and Leibniz began to explore what rational thought looked like. They explored the possibility of universal language of reasoning as a structured, geometric theorem. Their ideas launched an inspiration into artificial intelligence.
  • Dartmouth Conference- Machine Intelligence Research

    Dartmouth Conference- Machine Intelligence Research
    Following WW2, millions of dollars were used to research machine intelligence. Artificial intelligence was a term coined at the Dartmouth conference in Dartmouth, and launched the field. Applied efforts in AI included programs like "Logic Theorist" and "General Problem Solver," as well as the AI programming language "LISP." Read more here
  • Moore's Law

    Moore's Law
    One of technologies' most important trends, Moore describes how regular "doubling" of electronic components on an integrated circuit could plunge technology forward into exponential growth. He forecasted that within a decade circuit density would leap from 64 components to more than 65,000. Watch this video that explains Moore's law in 60 seconds!
  • Rosalind Picard- MIT Media Lab

    Rosalind Picard- MIT Media Lab
    Picard worked as a research assistant, and worked on a range of new technologies and engineering challenges, like new architectures for pattern recognition, mathematical modeling, computer vision, perceptual science, signal processing. Picard's work in image modeling and content-based retrieval led to a system her team developed that was a precursor to modern day systems like Google Images.
  • Office Assistant- Clippy and the Squeezable mouse

    Office Assistant- Clippy and the Squeezable mouse
    In the mid 1990s, Microsoft came out with a system that used Bayesian Algorithms to make decisions on probability of intent. This was an interactive system called Clippit- the animated paperclip would pop up to offer help to users. A newer design adapted an improved emotional intelligence that used a tension-recognition system to respond to the user.
  • Microchips

    In the near future, it will be universal and "normal" to give people microchips under their skin which contains GPS tracking, medical storage information, and personal history. Essentially, it would be like a database of information that is accessible instantaneously. Here is a video on how Sweden is already microchipping people.
  • Living Robots

    Living Robots
    We may have the technology to breed living machines from stem cells in animal embryos. They are already working on this! Watch more here! You can also read about it in this article. I think we will see a rise in robots in virtually every aspect of our lives, and in 100 years, it will be a normal part of life.
