What Does AGI Mean?


The term "Artificial General Intelligence" (AGI) refers to highly autonomous artificial intelligence (AI) systems that outperform humans at most economically valuable work.

In Detail

AGI refers to advanced AI systems that are capable of surpassing human performance in the majority of tasks that hold economic value.

Unlike Narrow AI, which is programmed to perform a specific task and operates under a limited set of constraints, AGI can understand, learn, adapt, and implement knowledge across a wide array of tasks at the human level or beyond.

AGI is the kind of AI seen in science fiction, able to solve complex problems, understand context, and perform any intellectual task that a human can do. While AGI's creation could herald immense societal changes, as of today, it remains largely theoretical.
