Artificial General Intelligence

Human intelligence can be defined as our ability to learn and perform a wide variety of tasks in different domains and environments and by exhibiting traits such as reasoning, strategy, problem solving, making judgments when unsure, planning, and communication in natural language. Currently this type of intelligence does not exist computationally. AI, like we see used in our phones and even the algorithms we see in more complex forms like language models, are far more narrow and only able to operate in a specific context. If we are able to one day create Artificial Intelligence that is truly general; able to learn and comprehend any intellectual task in the same manner as a human can, it may help us to solve problems at a pace and scale that humans alone have not been able to. By building and collaborating with AGI we should be able to gain a deeper understanding of our world, resulting in significant advances for humanity.
