- Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an umbrellla term for many different fields of study, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and many fields overlap others.
- Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is the term used to which refers to the development of AI systems that can perform any intellectual task that a human can. AGI is often seen as the ultimate goal of AI developmen.
- To achieve AGI it is likely that many fields within AI will be utilised, but it is not a field of AI like Computer Vision or Machine Learning.
Within AI there are many fields and there is significant overlap and interaction between them. This list will start with AGI which is not technically a field but rather a goal of the various fields of study.
Artificial General Intelligence
An AGI system would be capable of understanding and learning any intellectual task that a human can, such as reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making, and creativity, among others. AGI is often seen as the ultimate goal of AI development, and its successful creation would represent a major milestone in the history of artificial intelligence. However, AGI development poses significant technical and ethical challenges, and its implementation is still a matter of ongoing research and debate.
