Artificial general intelligence

Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is the intelligence of a machine that could successfully perform any intellectual task that a human being can. It is a primary goal of some artificial intelligence research and a common topic in science fiction and future studies. Artificial general intelligence is also referred to as „strong AI“,[1] „full AI“[2] or as the ability of a machine to perform „general intelligent action“.[3] Academic sources reserve „strong AI“ to refer to machines capable of experiencing consciousness.
Some references emphasize a distinction between strong AI and „applied AI“[4] (also called „narrow AI“[1] or „weak AI“[5]): the use of software to study or accomplish specific problem solving or reasoning tasks. Weak AI, in contrast to strong AI, does not attempt to perform the full range of human cognitive abilities.
