A brief history of AI

The whole world is suddenly talking about Artificial Intelligence - and the beginnings of the technology go back to the 1950s. Since then, it has undergone a changeable development: the high-flying expectations of the American AI pioneers, who dreamed of machines as general problem solvers, were followed by phases of disillusionment and renewed upswing. In Germany, AI research has been conducted intensively since the 1980s. German scientists have made a name for themselves particularly in speech comprehension, image processing and robotics. Groundbreaking successes were achieved in Germany in autonomous driving and speech recognition.
