CS 1501: Artificial General Intelligence
“As our circle of knowledge expands, so does the circumference of darkness surrounding it.”
About the Course
The course serves to survey the exciting and nascent field of artificial general intelligence, or AGI. Throughout the semester, we will explore the intersection of computer science, philosophy, and cognitive science, as well as learn fundamental concepts of mind and superintelligence. The classes will mainly consist of looking at current research in the field, as well as debates and discussions about the nature of the mind, synthetic consciousness and intelligence, and what exactly it means to be human. Our generation will have to answer the most important questions humanity has ever asked regarding who we are, and we need to start early; we need to get this right.
