However, the field of AI is 67 years old, and this is the third in a series of five articles wherein:

The first article discusses the genesis of AI and the first hype cycle during 1950 and 1982
The second article discusses a resurgence of AI and its achievements during 1983-2010

The fourth article discusses the current hype cycle in Artificial Intelligence
The fifth article discusses as to what 2018-2035 may portend for brains, minds and machines

The 1983-2004 era saw research and development in AI gradually picking up and leading to a few key accomplishments (e.g., Deep Blue beating Kasparov in Chess) and commercialized solutions (e.g., Cyberknife), but its pace really picked up …
