STEP 476: Artificial Intelligence: The Robotic MA (CE: 1.0)


The term “artificial intelligence” (AI) was introduced by cognitive computer scientists Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy at a workshop on the campus of Dartmouth College during the summer of 1956. They proposed that “every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it.” As early as the 1930s, philosophers described “human thinking” as the manipulation of symbols. This article discusses the ways AI can improve access to and utilization of healthcare.
