Stanford AI Lab
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (commonly called the Stanford AI Lab, or SAIL), was one of the leading centres for artificial intelligence research from the 1960s through the 1980s.

It was started by John McCarthy after he moved from MIT to Stanford in 1963. From 1965 to 1991, it was housed in the fabled D.C. Power building (named after an executive of G.T.E, which donated the building and site to Stanford, not the type of electricity), in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking Stanford.

SAIL alumni played a major role in many Silicon Valley firms, including Sun Microsystems. Research accomplishments at SAIL were many, including in the fields of speech recognition and robotics.

SAIL also created the WAITS operating system.
