                Artificial
Intelligence is a field that studies how to create computers and computer
software of intelligent behaviour.5 It is a man – made intelligence yet is of
real quality. The traditional goals of AI include reasoning, knowledge,
planning, learning, natural language processing, perception and the ability to
move and manipulate objects. General intelligence is the long term goal of AI.
That’s where the field of Artificial General Intelligence comes into play.

 

Artificial General
Intelligence (AGI) or strong AI is a type of AI, which defines the intelligence
of a machine that could successfully perform any intellectual task that a human
being can. It is also referred to as the ability of a machine

to perform
“general intelligent action”.2 The term “strong AI” is also used to
refer to machines with consciousness. In addition to the traditional goals of
AI, other important capabilities like ability to sense and act, especially
ability to detect and respond to hazard. Apart from these, additional traits
like imagination and autonomy. Computers that exhibit such abilities does
exist, but are not up to the level of human intelligence.

 

Superintelligence
defies all the limitations posed by AGI. It is defined as an intelligence that
surpasses all humans of utter intelligence.5 The definition of
superintelligence coined by University of Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom goes
as “an intellect that is much smarter than the best human brains in practically
every field, including scientific creativity, general wisdom and social
skills”. Some researchers believe that superintelligence will likely follow
shortly after the development of artificial general intelligence.3
