pp. 12-13
James Hendler, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Oliver G. Selfridge, a leader in early artificial intelligence research, whose work extended from 1956 to 2008, recently passed away. His research in machine learning, neural networks and agent-based computing still influence AI today. He helped organize the 1956 Dartmouth summer school, which is generally seen as the origin of American AI and developed Pandemonium, an early AI program that dealt with learning and reasoning, during his more than 50-year career.
