Intelligent behaviour in machines
With the publication in 1950 of Alan Turing's paper "Computing machinery and intelligence", the old question "can machines think?" acquired a new meaning, which soon proved to have a strong impact on the scientific community (Turing 1950). Operating methods for attacking the problem in a scientific way were finally made available. And both scientists and philosophers began to work on the positive assumption that "machines can think!"
