What is the difference between AI & AGI?

Avery Thomas
Dec 8, 2022

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but they are, in fact, two distinct concepts.

AI is defined as the ability of a machine or computer to imitate or replicate human intelligence or behaviour. AI algorithms have been designed to solve specific problems or tasks, such as playing chess, recognizing faces, or driving a car. AI is often used to automate tasks that are too complex for humans to do quickly or accurately.

AGI, on the other hand, is an advanced form of AI. It is a type of AI that is designed to be able to replicate or exceed human intelligence or behaviour across a variety of domains. AGI is an attempt to create a machine that can think and reason like a human, using a range of different problem-solving methods. AGI is still a relatively new field of research and has not yet been successfully implemented in any practical application.

In short, AI is focused on solving specific tasks, while AGI is focused on replicating or surpassing human intelligence across a variety of tasks. AI can be used to automate tasks that humans cannot do quickly or accurately, while AGI is an attempt to create a machine that can think and reason like a human.
