Abstract In recent years broad community of researchers has emerged, focusing on the original ambitious goals of the AI field - the creation and study of software or hardware systems with general intelligence comparable to, and ultimately perhaps greater than, that of human beings. [...] Key Result Metrics for general intelligence are evaluated, with a conclusion that, although metrics for assessing the achievement of human-level AGI may be relatively straightforward (e.g. the Turing Test, or a robot that can…Expand
An Overview of Approaches Evaluating Intelligence of Artificial Systems
Artificial General Intelligence seeks to create an artificial system capable of solving many different and possibly unforeseen tasks thus being comparable in its intelligence to that of a human. Such
Review of progress in Artificial General Intelligence and Human Brain inspired Cognitive Architecture
General Intelligence has been the broader and realistic goal of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The progress in general AI has been unimpressive in comparison with the Narrow AI systems. This paper
Artificial General Intelligence: 13th International Conference, AGI 2020, St. Petersburg, Russia, September 16–19, 2020, Proceedings
By proving that a certain measure (arguably an intelligence measure) decreases when an idealized parent AGI single-handedly creates a child AGI, it is argued that a similar Law holds for AGIs.
A Survey of Artificial General Intelligence Projects for Ethics, Risk, and Policy
Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is AI that can reason across a wide range of domains. It has long been considered the “grand dream” or “holy grail” of AI. It also poses major issues of ethics,
Adaptive General Search Framework for Games and Beyond
This paper proposes to develop a framework that autonomously addresses a wide variety of search tasks, adapting automatically to each new, unknown task, to achieve this, to encode search algorithms in a formal language and combine algorithm portfolios with automatic algorithm generation.
Reasoning with Bounded Cognitive Resources
Reasoning is an essential element of intelligence. Automated reasoning in formal and symbolic systems is a major topic in computer science and artificial intelligence (AI). Programs for
Generalized Constraints as A New Mathematical Problem in Artificial Intelligence: A Review and Perspective
This comprehensive review describes a new mathematical problem in artificial intelligence (AI) from a mathematical modeling perspective, called "Generalized Constraints (GCs), and adopts GCs as a general term to describe any type of prior information in modelings to understand better about GCs to be a general problem.

The proposed Ladder Metric introduces a sequence of levels that intelligent agents must climb in order to reach the final, Turing indistinguishable, level.
Can Machines Design? An Artificial General Intelligence Approach
A formal computational creativity framework is integrated into the Godel machine framework to create a machine which could solve a variety of design problems by generating novel concepts and change the way these concepts are generated by modifying itself.


Toward a Formal Characterization of Real-World General Intelligence
Two new formal definitions of intelligence are presented, the ”pragmatic general intelligence” and ”efficient pragmatic general intelligence,” to capture a notion of general intelligence that more closely models that possessed by humans and practical AI systems.
Universal Intelligence: A Definition of Machine Intelligence
A number of well known informal definitions of human intelligence are taken, and mathematically formalised to produce a general measure of intelligence for arbitrary machines that formally captures the concept of machine intelligence in the broadest reasonable sense.
Rigid Flexibility: The Logic of Intelligence
This book is the most comprehensive description of the decades-long Non-Axiomatic Reasoning System (NARS) project, including its philosophical foundation, methodological consideration, conceptual
Adaptive Algorithmic Hybrids for Human-Level Artificial Intelligence
The goal of this chapter is to outline the attention machine computational framework designed to make a significant advance towards creating systems with human-level intelligence (HLI). This work is
Measuring universal intelligence: Towards an anytime intelligence test
This paper introduces many new ideas that develop early ''compression tests'' and the more recent definition of '' universal intelligence'' in order to design new ''universal intelligence tests'', one of which is the ''anytime intelligence test'', which adapts to the examinee's level of intelligence within a limited time.
Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach
The long-anticipated revision of this #1 selling book offers the most comprehensive, state of the art introduction to the theory and practice of artificial intelligence for modern applications.
Perspectives of Neural-Symbolic Integration
This carefully edited volume contains state-of-the-art contributions in neural-symbolic integration, covering `loose' coupling by means of structure kernels or recursive models as well as `strong' coupling of logic and neural networks.

This paper studies the practical issues involved in developing a real-world UIM-based performance metric and develops a prototype implementation which is used to evaluate a number of different artificial agents.
World survey of artificial brains, Part II: Biologically inspired cognitive architectures
A number of leading cognitive architectures that are inspired by the human brain, at various levels of granularity, are reviewed and compared, with special attention paid to the way their internal
Human-Level Artificial Intelligence? Be Serious!
It is claimed that achieving real human-level artificial intelligence would necessarily imply that most of the tasks that humans perform for pay could be automated, and advocated for the development of general-purpose, educable systems that can learn and be taught to perform any of the thousands of jobs that humans can perform.
