Cover picture for the articleAlthough the fictional HAL supercomputer was first introduced to movie-goers more than 50 years ago, there are important lessons learned that AI practitioners can apply today. HAL (heuristically programmed algorithmic computer) first debuted in the Stanley Kubrick classic film "2001: Space Odyssey" (1968).
