Episode 5: General Artificial Intelligence


Dr. Craig Kaplan explains why General Artificial Intelligence (GAI) -- sometimes also called Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) -- remains the "holy grail" of AI research.

 

He describes the difference between specialized AIs ("Idiot Savant AI") and GAI while arguing that the fastest path to GAI requires a combination of human collective intelligence and existing AI systems. He believes that we lack a widely accepted "architecture of cognition" for the emerging Global Brain. After reviewing some of the research efforts aimed at developing a general cognitive architecture, Dr. Kaplan emphasizes the importance of including humans at the center of such efforts to help ensure that the resulting GAI(s) retain human values.
