What is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)? | 4 Tests For Ensuring Artificial General Intelligence

In Today’s World, every online business either starts using AI or they already Implement it. A new Term that becomes quite common among data scientists, researchers, and Students is known as Artificial General Intelligence. Indeed the topic is not new, as we have already seen some implementations of Artificial Intelligence, and that is why researchers start thinking about Robots and various tools to measure their Intelligence.

What Is Artificial General Intelligence?

Artificial General Intelligence abbreviated as AGI may be defined as the ”ability of a machine to do intellectual work as a man can perform at a certain time”.

Many Researchers thought did not get matches, after how many years we can have this type of Robots or Machines. On the Other Hand, some Researchers believe that it might be possible that such intellectuality won’t happen. To date, no definition is Accepted everywhere for the confirmation AGI.

Some Tests to confirm Artificial General Intelligence

If Someone Asks you what is the parameter of intelligence at a Particular Situation, what would be your Answer?

Your Answer might be performing best in the given situation can be a parameter.

In the Case of Machines also, we define Intelligence based on their behavior in some conditions. Here we are discussing some tests for measuring the Intelligence in machines.

Turing Test For Artificial General Intelligence

This test was introduced in 1950 by Alan Turing. Although this test does not show how a machine is intelligent or not, it simply says that for a machine to be intelligent it should get passed the test.

Assume there are Two Humans and a machine available for the test. One human will ask the questions. The machine needs to give reasonable answers and fool the human who is asking questions that this is Human. Up to Now, Machines pass the test which involves Simple Answers such as Yes/No. But for highly Intellectual questions, these Machines are not yet ready enough to pass.

The Coffee Test

This Test is Slightly difficult for machines. According to this test, an AI  in whichever form it is has to go into the House, find out where the kitchen is, have to get all the ingredients for coffee, and use those ingredients Machine Should be able to make Coffee.

The Robot College Student Test

This test can be easily guessable by the name. Suppose there is a Robot named TALKYBLOG and it takes admission to Howard University. Then like any other Student TALKYBLOG1 needs to do all the work starting from filling out the form for the University to passing the Degree. If Robot passes the Degree then Robot possesses AGI. this test was proposed by Ben Goertzel.

The Employment Test

This test was given by Nils J. Nilsson. According to this test, the Robot works as a Human Employee, and the work done by the Robot should be matched with the human employee working for the same job in the organization. If a Robot could be able to complete its task, then we can assume that General Artificial Intelligence Has Reached.

The Flatpack Furniture Test

In this Test machine first, need to first unpack the flat-pack furniture. Furthermore, it must follow the instructions given and pack the furniture. There should not be any mistakes while assembling the furniture. This test was Proposed by Tony Severyns.

Currently, many larger Organisations are working on AGI (Artificial General Intelligence)  Research and its maintenance. In the Near Future, the above-given tests get passed by the machines and Newer Test will be Proposed. But the basic idea of Proposing these Tests is to verify that the intellect of Machines becomes equal to humans.
