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 seem like a lost cause ...

Is there any research on developing AGI systems based on meta-programming?

Meta-programming is programming that can modify itself, which is an appealing concept to me, given that I associate the idea of modifying one's self with general intelligences (like humans). I think ...

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....

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

Given infinite resources/time one could create AGIs by writing code to simulate infinite worlds. In some of the worlds AGIs would be created. Detecting them would be another issue. Since we don't ...
