What kind of abilities will AGI have? in General AI Discussion

I know, I know... this thread is probably somewhat redundant.
And...we all know a.i.'s capabilities are extensive and intensive at the same time.

But my main question is: What actual Abilities will an true AGI posses that make it an AGI? Being able to pick up objects? No... Reasoning yes... But my question is, what does it change in the world? How? What are its "world changing" abilities? That, that is my question! Yes grasping is important but...that's just implementing the solution.

Here's a fake example answer:

AGI will be:
Able to recognize objects.
Able to do math (the AGI is a/has a calculator) (lol).
Able to successfully conveyor belt products in a limited/narrow factory in China.
Able to reason (what does that even mean, explain).
Able to predict (what? How? Why?).
Able to do cloaking.
Able to teleport.
Able to generate crazy artworks.
Able to jump around a house.

Hopefully Something

ETHICS in General AI Discussion

If we create an AGI, we need to make sure it behaves well. I tried to distill ethics to the basic principles. Let me know if I've forgotten to include anything important.

ETHICS : Do not attempt nor accomplish actions which do unjust harm to other life. Attempt and accomplish actions which aid other life.

A big Hi to all bot lovers and makers! in New Users Please Post Here

Hello guys!

Nice to find this forum. It seems to be pretty active. I am seeking the best section where I can ask about integration of IOT devices and chatbot platforms, specially Azure Bot Services. Also I would like to hear some opinion from veterans here about how Azure/Microsoft bot framework can handle real-time data from my sensors. Although I have found many experiences about bots controlling homes or appliances, my bot is not supposed to control anything: I just want to push data from analog/digital sensors and feed the conversation.

Looking to hear from you mates!

Thanks in advance.

BOOST in General Chat

I've noticed from my own work that if I feel pressured and have to do, I will make discoveries faster and get more work done, including if you work 24/7 and do-not take those "breaks".

It's kinda like that Russian 1950 dog head kept alive for a short time, we still can't do better than that or focus on it even, but if even 1 person devoted all their time and felt they had to come up with the solution by next year, it'd come.

Imagine your name is Ian Goodfellow. You feel like you can do magic, fast. Why can't you be fast and excellent? You can. You only think not maybe because your last name is Rogers. Silly example but may help.

Just don't boost on the alcohol.

collaborators wanted. in AI Programming

I have to finish it as I am not totally happy with the look but I am starting a web based business for creating chatbots and websites. IF anyone is interested or bored and wants to help let me know. I can't promise you any money. If you do get work it will because someone hired you from the website. I can promise to try to get the word out though so if you are retired, unemployed, bored, whatever join me.

How many lines of code will AGI be? in General AI Discussion

To spice up the thread, let's add 3 more questions:

Q - How many lines of code is your AGI at the moment? And what can that do / how close to true AGI?
Q - How many lines are in a CNN recognizer? LSTM? GAN? Google's puzzle solver? Tell us a bit about their code sizes.
Q - How many for python, how many for C, and how many for C++?

It was released on June 29, 2018, by Netflix.

Julia is a loner who makes money as a thief in seedy nightclubs. One night, she is abducted from her home and wakes up restrained and gagged in a dark prison inside of a home with two other people, each with an implant in the back of their necks. As "subject 3," she endures a series of torturous psychological sessions by a shadowy figure in a lab. One night, she steals a pair of scissors and destroys the lab in an escape attempt, but she is stopped and the other two subjects are killed by a robot in the house, Aries, run by an artificial intelligence, Tau.

Alex, the technology executive who owns the house, reveals the implant is collecting her neural activity as she completes puzzles, and subjects her to more tests, because he is using the data to develop more advanced A.I. with a big project deadline in a few days.

Bot Development Frameworks - Getting Started

Bot Development Frameworks - Getting Started in Articles

What Are Bot Frameworks ?

Simply explained, a bot framework is where bots are built and where their behavior is defined. Developing and targeting so many messaging platforms and SDKs for chatbot development can be overwhelming. Bot development frameworks abstract away much of the manual work that's involved in building chatbots. A bot development framework consists of a Bot Builder SDK, Bot Connector, Developer Portal, and Bot Directory. There’s also an emulator that you can use to test the developed bot.
