 Artificial General Intelligence

Narrow AI, computer scientists, problem solving

The level at which AI’s intelligence and human intelligence are at an equal level is called Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Machines at this stage have the same intellectual capacity level as we humans have.


So, all that Madonna can grasp or any other human being can, so can the machines.


From a commercial perspective, this means that there are no tasks that employees need to solve anymore. Machines can perform any tasks that a human can. So, why let people do any of them if robots can make any task for “free”?

Colossal consequenses

The consequences of reaching such a stage are colossal. If machines are capable of solving all the tasks that humans do today, why would anyone work? All value and everything we need can be created for us automatically.


The topic is so huge that you can find university professors that specialize in answering just this question.


If this aspect of AI has caught your interest, I have put together several links to good books and blogs on the subject which you can find on the book’s website: cognifirm.com/book.


Of course, researchers are debating whether or not we want to reach a level where Artificial General Intelligence is possible or if it is technically possible.

Creative Robots

For example, AI at this level will require robots to get creative in ways that make it possible for them to write a better song than “Bohemian Rapsody” or paint a better picture than Picasso’s “Femme Assise”. And can they do so without having the emotion, soul, and life experience?


Some scientists believe that we will reach the Artificial General Intelligence stage. They discuss the time frame, which they believe can range from 10 to 30 years from now. Of course, there is also a skeptical group that believes that robots will be smarter, but that humans always will have dimensions that can never be copied by a machine.

This Forbes article elaborates on what could drive us towards Artificial General Intelligence, and what could inhibit us from reaching this stage, https://www.forbes.com/sites/cognitiveworld/2019/06/10/how-far-are-we-from-achieving-artificial-general-intelligence/
