This paper offers a brief history of RAND's research in artificial intelligence (AI) and expert systems. The authors highlight RAND milestones beginning with the development of one of the first stored-program digital computers, the JOHNNIAC, to the current work on AI technology and its uses, including work on expert systems, knowledge-based simulation, and human-oriented environments. An extensive bibliography accompanies the text.
