A period where the promise of AI theory failed to meet practical applications
Financial support dried up
Researchers lost interest
What trigerred AI Winter?
What/Who ended AI winter?
Let’s go back in time to 1960’s
Just a fyi. Most of the video clips below are 30 to 50 seconds in duration
Early 1960’s: Invention of Perceptron

1970’s: AI funding dried up
General feeling within AI was that Neural networks was non sense. Minsky and Pappert had just shown that could not do all things. They couldn’t do everything from learning .This limitation was over generalized.
