I recently returned from a wonderful holiday in West Cork! I remembered that Boolean logic was invented by George Boole, the first professor of Mathematics at Queen's college Cork. He wrote "The laws of thought" which contains Boolean logic. Boolean logic is used in many types of AI technology today since most computers perform their functions using two-value Boolean logic. Boolean logic uses AND, OR, NOT operators and variables take the value 1 or 0 to represent true and false. Boolean searching is used in many AI applications. 

Today AI research and development in Ireland is thriving.
