Virtual Beings & Artificial Intelligence


Notes:

The term “virtual beings” seems to have first been used in scholarly literature in 1936 by Alexis Carrel. The first time “virtual beings” were mentioned in the same scholarly publication as “artificial intelligence” was by Hilary McLellan in 1992, 15. Virtual Realities.
