Episode 5: Artificial General Intelligence

Dr. Craig Kaplan explains why AGI remains the "holy grail" of AI research.


Kaplan describes the difference between specialized AIs ("Idiot Savant AI") and AGI while arguing that the fastest path to AGI 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 research efforts aimed at developing a general cognitive architecture, Kaplan emphasizes the importance of including humans in the loop of such efforts to help ensure that the resulting AGIs retain human values.
