Artificial Intelligence Is Approaching Human Intelligence

According to Moore’s law, computer-processing power doubles every eighteen months. Using Moore’s law and simple mathematics suggest that in ten years, the processing power of our personal computers will be over a hundred times greater than the computers we currently …

How Moore’s Law Ended the Second AI Winter

In our last post, I stated, “While AI as a field of research experienced funding surges and recessions, the infrastructure that ultimately fuels AI, integrated circuits, and computer software continued to follow Moore’s law. In the next post, we’ll discuss …

What Caused the Second “AI Winter”?

In our last post, we stated, “When the early founders of AI set extremely high expectations, they invited scrutiny. With the passing years, it became obvious that the reality of artificial intelligence fell short of their predictions. In 1974, funding …
