The birth of AI

Artificial intelligence was born at one of the most boring-sounding places in the world: the US Weather Bureau in Washington, D.C. The year was earlier than you might think—1958. And Cornell University professor Frank Rosenblatt had something to show people. It was a machine connected to a computer, and its name was Perceptron. 

No, Perceptron wasn’t a Transformers villain. It was the future of AI.

AI Has Always Been Controversial

From the very beginning, Perceptron sparked a lot of controversy. While some people thought it had great potential, others focused only on its limitations. In fact, Rosenblatt was so chagrined by his critics that he changed fields, shifting his focus to research in neuroscience.
