Research Institute for the History of Science and Technology , Deutsches Museum:
We are a group of five historians of science and technology exploring the history of artificial intelligence (AI) research in West Germany, supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Based at the research institute for the history of science and technology of the Deutsches Museum in Munich, our project will run for three years from early 2020 to the end of 2022. Using archival research and oral histories, we’re looking at five areas: automated theorem proving (Rudolf Seising), expert systems (Jakob Tschandl), image recognition & processing (Dinah Pfau), language recognition & processing (Florian Müller), and the interactions between artificial intelligence and cognitive science (Helen Piel).
