From 1950, when the Turing test was proposed, to 2022, when ChatGPT addressed the Turing test, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has undergone decades of innovation and thriving development. Throughout this continuous evolution, numerous influential figures, concepts, events, and achievements have emerged, giving birth to numerous subfields and research topics within AI. These achievements have enriched the AI ecosystem, enabling it to process single tasks such as image classification, augment complex application scenarios like Internet services, and even achieve general intelligence comparable to human beings.
