Massively Profitable and Beneficial Path Needed to AGI

•, by Brian Wang

Narrow Superintelligence are AI-related software systems that are beyond humans in some area of activity.

Google makes a beyond human capability search engine. Google is a trillion-dollar company.

Tesla is leading the way to self-driving cars. This will be beyond human capability in driving. This is taking billions of dollars and the data from millions of cars.

Deep Mind was acquired by Google in 2014 for $500 million and had losses of nearly $500 million in 2018. AlphaZero is a modified version of AlphaGo Zero. AlphaZero handles any two-player game of perfect information, gained superhuman abilities at chess and shogi. Like AlphaGo Zero, AlphaZero learned solely through self-play. Google has spent more than $1.5 billion on Deep Mind and it has 1000 employees. AlphaGo technology was developed based on the deep reinforcement learning approach.

Deep Learning and Deep reinforcement learning seem to be lacking key concepts needed to enable full AGI systems.

Scaling and boosting AI capabilities are benefited from more computing resources. Billions of dollars of computing resources are needed to put an AI system at the leading edge.

Even after an AGI is created it will need to have access to data and knowledge to grow its capabilities.
