artificial general intelligence.

See AGI.


(1) (Advanced Geospatial Intelligence) See DOD intelligence glossary.

(2) (Artificial General Intelligence) A machine intelligence that resembles that of a human being. Considered impossible by many, most artificial intelligence (AI) research, projects and products deal with specific applications such as industrial robots, playing chess, robotic vacuum cleaners and robotic pets. Thus, AGI (strong AI) implies an electronic human, while ordinary AI (weak AI) deals with a finite set of capabilities.

One thing is certain and that is existing and future terminology for AI systems will be as subject to different opinions and descriptions as human psychology has been for centuries.

Super AI
Super AI is more science fiction than a goal, because a Super AI device knows that it exists for a purpose. In other words, the equivalent of human consciousness. Or as many believe, pure nonsense.

Spearheaded by Elon Musk, the OpenAI research organization was created to develop an AGI that is available to everyone. For more information, visit See AI, singularity, Turing test and Mechanical Turk.
