As in today genration the craze on AI is increasing day by say. Now let's known when and who started AI. 

American computer scientist John McCarthy is considered to be the father of Artificial Intelligence.

McCarthy organized the Dartmouth Conference in 1956. In this conference, he discussed the concept and possibilities of AI for the first time.

According to John McCarthy, AI is the science and engineering of creating intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs.

Although AI started in the 1950s, it got recognition in the early 1980s. In 1981, Japan started a plan called Fifth Generation using this technology. 

In this, an outline of a 10-year program for the development of supercomputers was presented.

After Japan, other countries also paid attention towards this. Britain made a project named 'Elvi' for this. European Union countries also started a program named 'Esprit'.

After this, in 1983, some private organizations together established an organization 'Micro-Electronics and Computer Technology'.

 Which Helps in develop advanced technologies applicable to Artificial Intelligence, such as Very Large Scale Integrated Circuits.
