AGI Society

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is an emerging field aiming at the building of “thinking machines”; that is, general-purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind (and perhaps ultimately well beyond human general intelligence). While this was the original goal of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the mainstream of AI research has turned toward domain-dependent and problem-specific solutions; therefore it has become necessary to use a new name to indicate research that still pursues the “Grand AI Dream”. Similar labels for this kind of research include “Strong AI”, “Human-levelĀ AI”, etc.

The Artificial General Intelligence Society is a nonprofit organization with the goals:

  • to promote the study of artificial general intelligence (AGI), and the design of AGI systems.
  • to facilitate co-operation and communication among those interested in the study and pursuit of AGI
  • to hold conferences and meetings for the communication of knowledge concerning AGI
  • to produce publications regarding AGI research and development
  • to publicize and disseminate by other means knowledge and views concerning AGI
