See, e.g., Alan Turing's great paper Turing The term "artificial intelligence" (AI) goes back to a summer conference in held at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. In Machines That Think, AI experts and New Scientist explore how artificial intelligence helps us understand human intelligence, machines that compose music and write stories - and ask if AI is really a threat.
