Artificial General Intelligence

Description

Artificial General Intelligence is a AI system that is capable of performing general (unrestricted) cognitive activities. General AIs are usually considered to be "sentient" in the sense that they have both an awareness of themselves and an ability to change their cognitive patterns without specific external intervention. A general intelligence would pass the Turing Test, in that it would be impossible to tell, through a blind interface, whether conversation with the AI is distinguishable from conversation with a human being. 

At the moment, there are no systems that are considered to be truly general AIs, though there is active research in this field. At the same time, it should be noted that there are human beings for whom, if the Turing Test was applied, may very well be considered to fail that test. Caveat emptor.

The increasing buzz of artificial intelligence in news and science fiction generally creates an illusion that machines might imitate and surpass human intelligence. However, that is only a type of artificial intelligence called artificial superintelligence. Artificial superintelligence is something that can be seen in sci-fi movies like Interstellar, where TARS assists the astronauts in their space mission along with having human-like conversations. However, there are other sci-fi fantasies like the one in…

Decentralized Intelligent Companies There is plenty of landscapes of blockchain and cryptocurrencies startups out there. I am anyway only interested in those companies working at the intersection (or the convergence, as someone calls it) of AI and blockchain, which apparently are not that many. They are mainly concentrated in San Francisco area and London, but there are…

How Blockchain can change AI In the previous section, we quickly touched upon the effects that AI might eventually have on the blockchain. Now instead, we will make the opposite exercise understanding what impact can the blockchain have on the development of machine learning systems. More in details, blockchain could: Help AI explaining itself (and making us believe it…

The goal is to give the reader an idea of our approach. Now, here's a fun activity: Get your camera phone ready, meetup with one or more Artificial Intelligence scientists and ask them to define intelligence -- scientifically. Make it clear that you define scientifically as not using abstract words such as "…

  By Mounir Shita, Entrepreneur, Business & Technology Executive | October 17, 2017 | Source: Linkedin Over the past years I've spent a lot of time writing about our approach to General AI, or Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Now it is time to take it from theory to practice. In August 2016 we launched a private beta. The beta was limited to a few individuals. Yet, the result were astonishing. The rate of learning and the ability to develop comprehension (although it is still fairly shallow…
