Though artificial intelligence started much earlier than cloud computing, cloud computing and its technologies have improved AI.
Things have changed a lot in fifty years. The evolution of the term Data Science is a good example. I learned statistics in the 1970s in a department of behavioral scientists and educators rather than a department of mathematics.
In the beginning, there was Simulmatics. A new book investigates the origins of data science. I still remember the first time I heard the term “data science”. It was thrown out by an account manager for one of those pricey IT consultancies my employer was so fond of.
We can see that Tukey’s sentiments echo today, as the term ‘Data Science’ is becoming an everyday jargon in the tech world. Additionally, many established universities have created ‘Data Science’ degree programs only in the past half-decade.
I would like to preface that the following articles outlining the history of computers by saying this is in no way an exhaustive history of the origin of computers.
If you are familiar with Neural Networks and Deep learning, you might wonder what the relation between Neurons and the brain and these networks is.
The interplay between science fiction and reality in the realm of brain computer interfacing. The brain is the final frontier of human anatomy. That isn’t to say that we understand all that is happening in every other part of our body. But for the most part I can tell you how the muscles in my arm work and what my stomach does when I eat a burrito.
The history of AI starts long before Turing, and even before computers.Turing clarifies that he’s interested in machines that “are intended to carry out any operations which could be done by a human computer.” In other words, he’s interested in complex digital machines.
