EIC Fei-Yeu Wang looks at the state of the field of AI and intelligent systems in light of MIT's Brains, Minds, and Machines Symposium, where numerous experts offered their critique of "unthinkable machines" developed by AI and robotics so far. He argues that the Internet and Web era actually implies the coming of the golden age for AI research and development. Thus, at this point, it is urgent that to develop more effective data-driven methods in AI, rather than a reboot of AI. This issue also presents the IEEE Intelligent Systems inaugural Hall of Fame.
