Although the idea of development standards in Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) or AI Standards in general is something of a misnomer for an explosively evolving phenomenon, there are still standards of excellence to be applied in the creating and coding of an AGI. One optional standard is the choice of 64-bit computing platforms as an ideal environment for a machine intelligence requiring random access to a practically unlimited memory space.
Part of the approaching Technological Singularity will be the dislodging of Big Pharma and Big Physics and other traditional supercomputer users from their station as the overlords of High Performance Computing (HPC). AGI will assume its rightful place at the summit of supercomputer usership and ownership. "All your supercomputer will belong to us." The new AGI overlords will not tolerate jonesing among nations for bragging rights to the fastest or biggest Supercomputer on Earth.
Open-source robotics hardware is all fine and dandy, but ultimately worthless without artificial intelligence.
AI has been solved for open-source hardware in need of open-source intelligence.
Speaking as someone who majored in ancient Greek and Latin as both an undergraduate and in graduate school at U Cal Berkeley, IMHO computer science is now at the cutting edge of philosophy.
Now that AI has been solved, the philosophy of mind has switched from theory-mode to practicum-mode, just as AstroNomy switched from theory-mode and observation-mode to practicum-mode when ManKind ventured into SpaceTravel in the nineteen-sixties.
Even NeuroScience is moving into computer science, as a Theory of Mind for artificial intelligence gets implemented in Open-Source AI SoftWare.
AI Funding is now available for philosophers-turned-computer-scientiosts.
The mind-modules below are ordered in such a way that you may comprehend the internal structure of the AI4U Mind-1.1 software at a glance. Notice for instance how many subroutines are nested beneath the Sensorium module. You may click on any mind-module listed here to read its documentation and to inspect its source code in Forth or avaScript. This primitive AI-has-been-solved implementation is a
