Recently winners of Turing Award have been announced as Yann LeCun, Geoff Hinton, and Yoshua Bengio for contribution Artificial intelligence. Let’s learn about their journey and the evolution of Artificial intelligence.

Alan Turing

Alan Turing, the British mathematician who is also considered as the father of mathematics laid the foundation for computers and artificial intelligence. The famous P & NP problems that are taught to computer science students is the base for the Turing test (Turing test was designed). The Turing test, developed by Alan Turing in 1950 is a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. Turing proposed that a human evaluator would judge natural language conversations between a human and a machine designed to generate human-like responses which laid the foundation to researches on AI.

Yann LeCun, Geoff Hinton, and Yoshua Bengio

Geoff Hinton is from a long line of the family consisting of mathematician and scientists. He continued his study at the University of Edinburgh where he was awarded a PhD in artificial intelligence in 1977 for research supervised by his mentor Christopher Longuet-Higgins. Geoff Hinton co-authored & published a seminal 1986 paper on a learning algorithm called backpropagation. That algorithm, known as a backdrop, is at the heart of deep learning today, but back then the technology wasn’t developed enough to run the multi-layered neural networks so that results with minimum error can be generated.
