In 2017, we predicted that artificial general intelligence will gain traction in research and certain areas will aid towards AGI systems. The prediction was made in a set of other AI predictions in an article titled 18 striking AI Trends to watch in 2018. Let's see how 2018 went for AGI research. Artificial general intelligence or AGI is an area of AI in which efforts are made to make machines have intelligence closer to the complex nature of human intelligence. Such a system could possibly, in theory, perform tasks that a human can with the ability to learn as it progresses through tasks, collects data/sensory input.
