We survey the history of the Tate conjecture on algebraic cycles. The conjecture is closely related with other big problems in arithmetic and algebraic geometry, including the Hodge and Birch–Swinnerton-Dyer conjectures. We conclude by discussing the recent proof of the Tate conjecture for K3 surfaces over finite fields.
