I am searching for a publishable research project in AGI. I have previous experience with machine learning(via Andrew Ng's course), but I want to explore other aspects of intelligence apart from pattern recognition.

Given my undergraduate computer science background, any suggestions as to what I can work on? No constraint on the programming language(I have comfortable with python). Mathematical background: Linear algebra, will learn probability if required.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to ai.se....you have given a very broad scope without actually mentioning or programming language skills or your interests...I suggest you add some of those details for a better answer $\endgroup$ – DuttaA Apr 17 '18 at 15:18
  • $\begingroup$ Your intent is noble, but this question may be out of scope (asking for a specific project to work on.) I might recommend reworking the question to ask about recent published work AGI, or to ask what kinds of projects might be suitable for AGI. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Apr 17 '18 at 21:05
  • $\begingroup$ check out singularitynet.io, Ben Goertzel's entire focus is on AGI $\endgroup$ – hisairnessag3 Apr 18 '18 at 8:23

considering your current skill-set and experience , it would be better if you work through some courses on neural-networks (cs231n) to get a better idea of state of the art techniques. current research in AGI is still in infancy (or even less). so it would be best if you choose some-more relevant projects , or if you are really into AGI you should definitely go through a course on reinforcement-learning to get a very-basic idea of the vastness of the field.

The only projects in AGI I am aware of are OpenCog and various research in MIRI.

If you are interested in AI research perhaps another approach would be via the cognitive science / psychology literature. After all, to create a psychological model which explains experimental result is what one does in experimental psychology!
