These could be theoretical breakthroughs (like "the idea of a perceptron" or [something Judea Pearl did]), or they could be watershed developments / new applications that don't necessarily involve much new theory (like AlexNet or AlphaGo). Anything that seems like an important development in AI, is fair game.
I want an independently-generated list of all the interesting developments of AI, over the whole life of the fields, for a research project that I'm working on.
Feel free to include ones that you, personally, think were a big deal in some way, even if most people don't think so.
