Questions tagged [strong-ai]

For questions related to strong AI, which is also known as artificial general intelligence (a hypothetical machine that exhibits behavior at least as general and flexible as humans do). In contrast to strong AI, weak (or narrow) AI focuses on solving a specific or narrow task. For example, AlphaGo is a narrow AI, because it is an AI that has a specific and narrow application, namely, the game of go.
