The History of the Internet Project Super-Intelligent Machines: 7 Robotic Futures | The Singularity & Artificial Intelligence by Tia Ghose, Senior Writer | May 07, 2013 12:29pm ET Credit: | Shutterstock It's been the fodder for countless dystopian movies: a singularity in which artificial intelligence rivals human smarts. But though it sounds like science fiction, many computer scientists say the singularity will arrive some time in the 21st century. Still, few people agree on what that future will look like. From mass extinction to life extension, here are six potential implications of super-smart robots.

A Brief History of the Internet An anecdotal history of the people and communities that brought about the Internet and the Web (Last updated 28 May 2014) A Brief History of the Internet by Walt Howe is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.Based on a work at You can also read this history in a Belorussion translation by Bohdan Zograf and a Brazilian Portuguese translation by Valério Faras. The Internet was the result of some visionary thinking by people in the early 1960s who saw great potential value in allowing computers to share information on research and development in scientific and military fields. When the late Senator Ted Kennedy heard in 1968 that the pioneering Massachusetts company BBN had won the ARPA contract for an "interface message processor (IMP)," he sent a congratulatory telegram to BBN for their ecumenical spirit in winning the "interfaith message processor" contract. Who was the first to use the Internet?

Yapay Zekanın Zaman Tüneli - Gatmer Yapay zeka geçmişten geleceği teknolojinin hayatı değiştirdiği dönemler boyunca tartışılmış ve tartışılacak olan bir ürün olarak çağın belirleyicileri arasında her zaman bulunmuştur ve bulunacaktır. Günümüze kadar neredeyse her dönem bilim kurgu sinema filmlerinin konusu olan yapay zeka artık teknolojinin ilerlemesinden dolayı geliştirilip geliştirilmemesi yönündeki tartışmaların temeline oturdu. Eskiden ütopik bir dünyanın ürünü olan yapay zeka günümüze nasıl geldi önemli uğrak noktaları nelerdir aslında hangi filmler ve teknolojik gelişmeler yapay zekanın gelişiminde ki önemli noktalar bu galerimizde bunları araştırdık.1-Isaac Asimov 1950 yılında yazdığı I Robot kitabıyla yapay zekayı düşünce yapımıza entegre eden kişi yine aynı dönemde Alan Turing tarafından bilgisayar ve makinalar için kağıt üstünde uygulanmaya başlayan Turing Testi. 2-Yapay zekanın araştırılması ve geliştirlmesi için ilk karar Dartmouth Konferansı’nda alındı IBM 702 bilgisayarlarla başladı.

Computer chatbot 'Eugene Goostman' passes the Turing test A computer program that pretends to be a 13-year-old Ukrainian boy called Eugene Goostman passed a Turing test at the Royal Society in London yesterday (Saturday 6 June) by convincing 33 percent of the judges that it was human during a five-minute typed conversation. The test was suggested by computer scientist Alan Turing in 1950, and the competition was held on the 60th anniversary of his death. The judges included Robert Llewellyn, who played the android Kryten in Red Dwarf, and Lord Sharkey, who led the campaign for Turing's posthumous pardon last year. Llewellyn tweeted: "Turing test was amazing. Eugene Goostman's success was not a surprise. Kevin Warwick, a visiting professor at the University of Reading, which organised both tests, said it was the first time a chatbot had passed an open-ended test, rather than one where topics or questions were set in advance. The fictional Eugene has a father who is a gynaecologist, and has a pet guinea pig. Further reading

The History of the Internet in a Nutshell By Cameron Chapman If you’re reading this article, it’s likely that you spend a fair amount of time online. However, considering how much of an influence the Internet has in our daily lives, how many of us actually know the story of how it got its start? Here’s a brief history of the Internet, including important dates, people, projects, sites, and other information that should give you at least a partial picture of what this thing we call the Internet really is, and where it came from. While the complete history of the Internet could easily fill a few books, this article should familiarize you with key milestones and events related to the growth and evolution of the Internet between 1969 to 2009. 1969: Arpanet Arpanet was the first real network to run on packet switching technology (new at the time). The first message sent across the network was supposed to be "Login", but reportedly, the link between the two colleges crashed on the letter "g". 1969: Unix 1970: Arpanet network 1971: Email

AITopics Where Did the Internet Really Come From? Steve Crocker is chairman of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. In the late 1960s, he was a UCLA graduate student who helped create the ARPANET, a precursor to the Internet. During the early and mid 1960s – about a half a century ago – computers were physically very big. Only big companies, universities and governments had computers, storing them in special air-conditioned rooms. And they were expensive. On IBM’s flagship mainframe computer, the IBM 7094, the memory unit – what you would now call the RAM – held one megabit, i.e. about 128KB, and cost about one million dollars in the early 1960s. Here’s how the government changed all of that. Advertisement By the mid-1960s IPTO was funding a few dozen projects at UCLA, MIT, Harvard, Carnegie-Mellon, Stanford and similar universities and research laboratories. From their central vantage point in DARPA, key people could see the value of connecting these laboratories together.
