Letter from the Editors: AI Magazine in the New Era of AI
Artificial Intelligence has witnessed an exponential growth in the last decade and, thanks to its many successful and pervasive applications, it has now become a research field with profound societal impacts. The interest in AI has reached an all-time high from all sectors of our modern society, including industry, health, education and government. AI Magazine, founded in 1980, has documented the rise of AI from an elite and almost esoteric field to its current status of key player in modern society. Under the leadership of exceptional scientists with a global vision of the field, David Leake first and then Ashok Goel, it has provided a venue for vibrant discussion on technological transformations, research trends and fundamental breakthroughs.
