A Brief History of Artificial Intelligence… And How Its Transforming Fraud Prevention

Artificial intelligence is not something new. In fact, Ai has been around for over 80 years now. But as the decades have passed, Ai has truly blossomed, offering incredible solutions for almost all business processes.

But for the banking and credit union industry, Ai has become truly transformative. One Ai in particular, RembrandtAi™, has emerged as perhaps the single most important tool for detecting and potentially eliminating transactional bank frauds.

Here’s a Brief History of Ai…

  • German “Enigma” machine.
  • 1950, Alan Turing created the Turing Test. It was designed to see if humans could detect whether or not they were talking to a machine.
  • 1951: The earliest successful Ai program was written by Christopher Strachey.
  • 1958: John McCarthy created the Lisp computer language, the standard Ai programming language.
  • 1961: the first industrial robot called “Unimate” was created by George Devol. Among the very first Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools.

  • 1995: Richard Wallace created the chatbot “Alice” using natural language processing.
  • 1997: IBM’s Deep Blue Ai computer beat Gary Kasparov in a chess match.

It took nearly 60 years of Ai development for a computer to be able to beat a human chess master at his own game. But since the match between Deep Blue and Kasparov, Ai technology has accelerated at a parabolic rate.

  • 2008: The voice recognition technology called Siri was created.
  • 2011: IBM created “Watson” a question-and-answer computer system capable of answering questions in natural language.
