Largely considered to be the first AI (artificial intelligence) program, Logic Theorist was used to prove mathematical theorems. One of its notable achievements was proving 38 out of the first 52 theorems in the second chapter of Principia Mathematica; it even shortened some proofs.

The Logic Theorist worked by representing mathematical problems as logic statements, which it then attempted to prove using a set of predefined rules. It utilized a heuristic search algorithm to locate possible proof paths, aiming to find the most efficient way to demonstrate a theorem was solvable.
