Solomonoff, Artificial Intelligence & Probability

Obituary in the New York Times (Jan. 9, 2010):
Mr. Solomonoff [widely regarded, along with Marvin Minsky and John McCarthy, as one of the principal founders of Artificial Intelligence] went on to pioneer the application of probability theory to solving artificial intelligence problems.

More recently, probability theory has caught on among artificial intelligence researchers; it is now the dominant approach.
