The Future of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Last week we covered the past and current state of artificial intelligence -- what modern AI looks like, the differences between weak and strong AI, AGI, and some of the philosophical ideas about what constitutes consciousness. Weak AI is already all around us, in the form of software dedicated to performing specific tasks intelligently. Strong AI is the ultimate goal, and a true strong AI would resemble what most of us have grown familiar with through popular fiction. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is a modern goal many AI researchers are currently devoting their careers to in an effort to bridge that gap. While AGI wouldn't necessarily possess any kind of consciousness, it would be able to handle any data-related task put before it.
