Abstract:

  • Artificial general intelligence (AGI), or the notion of a computational system that is operational at the level of human intelligence, could be tentatively posed as the central concern for modern machine intelligence engineering. Qualities such as natural language processing, representation, teleological consciousness and the execution of judgements, if incorporated by an AGI system would not only level the system with the human, but would additionally secure an ‘outside view’, producing a schism between experience and its exterior. [15] The agents of this system, emerging out of a history of human-bound conceptions, now self-conceive their own practical movements, guided by intelligence-qualities and ideas semantically bound to statements of what intelligence is, and what the agents ought to do to make changes. In this sense, the ‘artificial’ in AGI is not merely indicating the system’s status as the artifice of a human engineer, but is the apprehension by the system itself of its own artificiality; the ability to make oneself the artefact of one’s own ends, intelligently crafting worlds exterior to any human-bound construction of concepts.
