(1) As a result, work in this area diminished greatly through the 1970s, during an era sometimes referred to as an "AI winter." However, interest in multilayer perceptrons was reignited in the mid-1980s after various breakthrough papers were published demonstrating how they could be made effective by employing specialized training algorithms.
The "AI winter" has ended--the success of AI methods has restored confidence in the approach, and funding for the field has increased in recent years in both the private and public sectors.
While the earlier wave of commercial efforts failed in 1980s leading to "AI winter", interests in AI research were renewed in 1990s with the explosion of the Internet (Markoff, 1997).
* We want to encourage bets that promote or advance the field, and discourage vague or nonscience bets such as "when will be the next AI winter" or "company X will be out of business by 2020"
But even assuming that the experts are correct - that there isn't another AI winter or broad technological stagnation -- nobody really knows what happens to a job whose tasks can be automated.
(In artificial intelligence, this cycle of hype and disillusionment has repeated so often it has a name: "AI winter.")
Privacy aside, another aspect that plagues us is the chance of an AI winter setting in that could hinder the progress and adoption of AI.
Artificial intelligence is long past the famous "AI winter," where hype far outstretched reality.
These events sparked a golden age of discovery, which ended in the so-called first AI winter in the 1970s.
The remaining snow drifts of skepticism left over from the "AI winter" that followed that earlier round of enthusiasm are melting fast--you can hardly find them now, perhaps only on shady edges of parking lots where the mountains left by snowplows of doubt back in the early '90s are now reduced to a few quickly shrinking snowballs.
Technology skeptics occasioned an "AI winter" once, and those interested in the recent resurgence of funding and interest in AI are unwilling to dismiss it yet again as a goal too grandiose for debate.
