Toward a General Model of Human-Like General Intelligence

AAAI Conferences

It is argued that any real-world, limited-resources general intelligence is going to manifest a mixture of general principles such as Solomonoff induction and complex self-organizing adaptation, with specific structures and dynamics that reflect corresponding structures and dynamics in the tasks and environments in whose context it was created. This interplay between the general and the specific will play out differently in each type of intelligent system. A number of ideas drawn from previous publications are reviewed here — e.g. cognitive synergy, PGMC and the Mind-World Correspondence Principle — which formalize aspects of this perspective, and provide guidance on how to use it to analyze and create general intelligences.

UN says next meeting with candidates for UN chief on June 7

U.S. News

The U.N. General Assembly's president says he is scheduling another round of question-and-answer sessions with candidates to succeed Ban Ki-moon as secretary-general on June 7. Mogens Lykketoft told reporters Tuesday he expects at least two new candidates to be nominated soon, and urged all others interested to have their names put forward before next month's meeting with the assembly's 193 member states. Nine candidates were interviewed last month. He refused to name the expected new candidates but diplomats have named three other likely contenders -- Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak, Argentine Foreign Minister Susanna Malcorra, and Alicia Barcena, a Mexican who heads the U.N. Economic Commission for Latin America. Under the U.N. Charter, the secretary-general is chosen by the General Assembly on the recommendation of the 15-member Security Council.


Report on the First Conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI-08)

AI Magazine

The First Conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI-08) was held on March 1-3, 2008, at the University of Memphis. The overall goal of the conference was to work toward a common understanding of the most promising paths toward creating AI systems with general intelligence at the human level and beyond, and to share interim results and ideas achieved by researchers actively working toward powerful artificial general intelligence.
