Job Description

Promotional piece aimed at the scientific community.

Please use fairly low-key, scientific tone.

Please say "AGI-08" w/ "oh" for "0" ... so it will be = "a g i oh 8"


Artificial General Intelligence - AGI - research focuses on the original and ultimate goal of AI - to create intelligence as a whole. AGI seeks to create software or hardware systems that are "generally intelligent" in roughly the same sense that humans are, rather than being specialized problem-solvers such as most of the systems currently studied in the AI field today.

Current research in the AGI field is vigorous and diverse, exploring a wide range of possible paths, including theoretical and experimental computer science, cognitive science, neuroscience, and innovative interdisciplinary methodologies.

The First Conference on Artificial General Intelligence - AGI-08 - is the very first international conference in this emerging field of science and engineering. The conference is organized with the cooperation of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and valued sponsors include, Atlantis Blue, Novamente LLC and the Artificial General Intelligence Research Institute. The conference is hosted at the University of Memphis with key sponsorship provided by the University’s Computer Science Department, the Institute for Intelligent Systems, and the FedEx Institute of Technology.

Different from conventional conferences, AGI-08 is planned to be intensively discussion oriented. All the research papers accepted for publication in the proceedings - 49 papers total - will be available in advance online, so that attendees may arrive prepared to discuss the relevant issues with the authors and each other. Additionally, the sessions of the conference will be organized to facilitate open and informed intellectual exchange on themes of common interest related to AGI.

Besides the technical discussions, time will also be scheduled for an exploratory discussion of possible ways to work toward the formation of a more cohesive AGI research community - including future conferences, publications and organizations. And after the two-and-half day conference, there will be a half day workshop on the broader implications of AGI technology, including ethical, sociological and futurological considerations.

Join us in Tennessee, March 1st through the 3rd for the first Conference on Artificial General Intelligence.
