Abstract:

Artificial Intelligence AI is conventionally, if loosely, defined as intelligence exhibited by machines. Operationally, it can be defined as those areas of R and D practiced by computer scientists who identify with one or more of the following academic sub-disciplines Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing NLP, Roboticsincluding Human-Robot Interactions, Search and Planning, Multi-agent Systems, Social Media Analysis including Crowdsourcing, and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning KRR. The field of Machine LearningML is a foundational basis for AI. While this is not a complete list, it captures the vast majority of AI researchers. Artificial General Intelligence AGI is a research area within AI, small as measured by numbers of researchers or total funding, that seeks to build machines that can successfully perform any task that a human might do. Where AI is oriented around specific tasks, AGI seeks general cognitive abilities. On account of this ambitious goal, AGI has high visibility, disproportionate to its size or present level of success, among futurists, science fiction writers, and the public.
