So there is a Soviet element! I wouldn't recognise him anyway, I'm afraid. Probably not many today's AI scientists would, either
It kind of shows how superficial and fashion-conscious 'modern AI' is!
MacCarthy coined the term "artificial intelligence
developed the Lisp programming language
family, significantly influenced the design of the ALGOL
programming language, popularized time-sharing
, invented garbage collection
, and was very influential in the early development of AI.
How many MLennenials know that? How many know the roller-coaster history of AI?
