A lot of sources attribute the definition to Arthur Samuel (1959), "the field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed", but none of these sources directly point to where he actually said the quote. Just a bunch of people saying he said that.

Some give it as his 1959 paper on checkers, but I don't find any such definition there.
