Aspects of AGI
• Philosophy of Mind
• Conception of General Intelligence
• Cognitive Architecture
• Software Architecture
• Environment & Tasks
• Developmental Roadmap

Philosophy of Mind

a mind is an evolving, autopoietic, self-referring set of patterns,
associated with a system that’s interpreted as goal-achieving –
including patterns in the system and the world (and emergent
therebetween), and patterns regarding goal-achievement

Conception of General Intelligence

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) – Humans are, in a certain sense, general-purpose rather than narrowly specialized intelligences… General intelligence may be loosely conceived as: “The ability of a system to achieve a variety of complex goals in a variety of complex environments using limited computational resources — including goals and environments that were not anticipated at the time the system was created.”
