We can brute force AGI with a realistic physics simulator

“An unknown, but potentially large, fraction of animal and human intelligence is a direct consequence of the perceptual and physical richness of our environment, and is unlikely to arise without it”. – John Locke (1632-1704) As we already know, AGI is probably the hardest problem mankind can work on and we do not have a… Continue reading We can brute force AGI with a realistic physics simulator

What do all these different versions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mean?

There are many variations of the word AI thrown around and I just want to clarify the differences. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) AGI is the goal of building AI systems.  Humans want to build Artificial General Intelligences that can do a wide variety of tasks just like humans can do.  This has been the goal… Continue reading What do all these different versions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mean?
