An evolutionary view on the emergence of Artificial Intelligence

  title={An evolutionary view on the emergence of Artificial Intelligence},
  author={Matheus Eduardo Leusin and Bjoern Jindra and Daniel Stefan Hain},
This paper draws upon the evolutionary concepts of technological relatedness and knowledge complexity to enhance our understanding of the long-term evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI). We reveal corresponding patterns in the emergence of AI globally and in the context of specific geographies of the US, Japan, South Korea, and China. We argue that AI emergence is associated with increasing related variety due to knowledge commonalities as well as increasing complexity. We use patent-based…
