Buchanan describes his work in artificial intelligence, the development of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the artificial intelligence (AI) community, and the role of the Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO) of the Advanced Research projects Agency (later the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) in AI research. Buchanan describes the work of Ed Feigenbaum, Josh Lederburg, Wes Churchman and Les Ernest at Stanford. He discusses the changes in AI funding, including developing additional NIH funding, with the Mansfield amendment which stipulated defense supported research should have defense applications. Buchanan concludes with a comparison of artificial intelligence and computer science development.
