Machine Learning (ML) results have been propelled forward in recent years, attracting a lot of attention from the general press and large corporations. ML is one subfield belonging to the broader scientific and technological initiative named Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the mid-1950s. In this presentation, we shall go briefly across the history and foundations of AI, in order to (1) appreciate from where it came and how, to some extent, it has preserved methodological coherence since its infancy, (2) attempt to interpret recent results from a broader perspective, and (3) formulate possible future steps that can ensure that the relevance of AI continues to grow and be judged as positive from both scientific and technological perspectives. Along the way we shall dispel some myths about the practicality of pursuing the development of an Artificial General Intelligence.
