I am looking for books or to state of the art papers about current the development trends for a strong-AI.

Please, do not include opinions about the books, just refer the book with a brief description. To emphasize, I am not looking for books on applied AI (e.g. neural networks or the book by Norvig). Furthermore, do not consider AGI proceedings, which contains papers that focus on very concrete aspects. The related Wikipedia describes some active investigation lines about AGI (cognitive, neuroscience, etc.) but can not be considered an educational/introductory resource. Finally, I am not interested in philosophical questions related to AI safety or risks or its morality if they are not related to its development. Development doesn't exclude mathematical foundation about it.

By example, if I look by example at this list "https://bigthink.com/mike-colagrossi/the-10-best-books-on-ai", the final candidates list became empty.

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure exactly what kind of resource you are after. The best resources we have on development right now are probably the AGI proceedings. This is a new area, and frankly it's considered boarderline/fringe science by most of the AI research community. Are you after philosophical readings on whether/how one might be built? Bostrom might be a good place to start in that case. $\endgroup$ – John Doucette Aug 5 '18 at 14:20
  • $\begingroup$ @JohnDoucette: we could think about a book explaining in a organized way the areas and main theories that proceedings works. Mainly from technical point, as Norvig does in AI. No ethicals if they are not related to the development $\endgroup$ – pasaba por aqui Aug 5 '18 at 14:25

    $\begingroup$ I think this is very unlikely to exist. The first AGI conference was held only a few years ago, and, like I said, I don't think anything much has come of it yet. New fields usually need at least a decade before there's likely to be a decent graduate-level textbook, let alone something like Norvig. $\endgroup$ – John Doucette Aug 5 '18 at 14:27
  • $\begingroup$ @JohnDoucette: Thanks for your comment. Book or web content or presentation , even a good state of art $\endgroup$ – pasaba por aqui Aug 5 '18 at 14:29

There's not really a good textbook yet, but there are more resources than I expected for this topic, so I'll list them as an answer here:

  1. MIT offers a course in this. The slides and lecture videos are up online. It looks fairly speculative to me, and perhaps more application-focused than what was asked for.

  2. There is actually a book called Artificial General Intelligence by Ben Goertzel and Cassio Pennachin. It's a bit out of date (from 2008), and published as a Springer-Verlag monograph (which tends to have fairly low editorial standards). This one is also an anthology, with each chapter written by a different author. It's probably not suitable as an undergraduate level book, but it does seem to contain something like the information that's wanted.

The paper Artificial General Intelligence: Concept, State of the Art, and Future Prospects (2014), by Ben Goertzel, surveys the field of artificial general intelligence and its progress. It reviews mathematical formalisms, engineering and biology-inspired perspectives. There are several approaches to AGI, including symbolic, emergentist, hybrid and universalist ones. The paper also discusses metrics for assessing AGI.
