Is time/space estimation of possible actions required for creating an AGI?

Given infinite resources/time, one could create AGIs by writing code to simulate infinite worlds. By doing that, in some of the worlds, AGIs would be created. Detecting them would be another issue. ...

Is an oracle that answers only with a "yes" or "no" dangerous?

I was thinking about the risks of Oracle AI and it doesn't seem as safe to me as Bostrom et al. suggest. From my point of view, even an AGI that only answers questions could have a catastrophic impact....

If we collected a very large labelled dataset from multiple sensors, then train a neural network with that data, could that lead to an AGI?

I've come up with an idea on how we could use a combination of Deep Learning and body sensors to create a walking talking living humanoid. Here goes: First, we will recruit 1 billion people and have ...

Might AGI need to be flawed?

An example is the halting problem, which states computing cannot be solved by exhaustion, but which humans avoid trivially by becoming exhausted. Humans typically give up what seems like a lost cause ...
