What Is Artificial General Intelligence?

Artificial general intelligence, or AGI, is a hypothetical form of AI designed to perform human-level cognitive functions, such as the capacity to self-teach. AGI is regarded as very powerful since it can autonomously solve a wide variety of cognitive tasks, as opposed to weak or narrow AI systems that carry out only particular or specialized tasks within a specified set of conditions.

TechRepublic Premium presents this explanation of AGI, including its evolution, features, potential benefits and drawbacks.

Because AGI is described as a human-level AI, it can be concluded that AGI should be capable of replicating human mental processes such as:

Perception: AGI must have advanced perceptual capacities, enabling it to interpret its surroundings. This entails processing sensory inputs like visual data from cameras, auditory data from microphones and other sensor-derived data that will allow the system to understand and interact with the external environment.
