Meg Houston Maker is doing some fantastic live blogging of the Dartmouth AI@50 conference.

This gathering celebrates, explores, and, to an extent, reprises the original Dartmouth Summer Research Project in artificial intelligence of 1956, which proceeded “on the basis of the conjecture that every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can in principle be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it.” John McCarthy, then a Dartmouth mathematics professor, and his colleagues Marvin Minsky (Harvard), Nathaniel Rochester (IBM), and Claude Shannon (Bell Labs) coined the term “artificial intelligence” in their funding proposal to highlight the role computers may play in simulating (or bettering) human intelligence.

It’s some of the best live blogging I’ve ever seen — she could do this for a living.
