A futurist in this community made a prediction which I thought was super exciting and should be kept track of here.
I think many people here view him in a trustworthy respectful light so the prediction should be taken seriously.
I wont say his name in case he doesn't want to put his name in sand to this prediction obviously he would explain his own prediction way better then me especially as I am not involved in AI.
Basically this user believes we will have AGI in 2021 and that the creation of AGI is now possible if the required resources are put into it.
It will be a first generation AGI so its not going to be that good by any means when compared to a human.
The User believes if it isn't released to the public in 2021 it probably means the creators just don't think the creation of a first gen AGI should be announced immediately or at once.
Personally I think if the first generation AGI happens it should be taken as a 95% + confirmation that human level AGI is possible.
We can also assume human level AGI is not to far as now you just have to make AGI better.
I think this thread should be used to discuss news on the creation of AGI this year or signs it was made but not revealed such as a organization pretending to make constant AI breakthroughs (to postpone/obscure saying they have made AGI to keep the public calm ect.)
I hope that the User liked that I posted this and clarifies his prediction explaining them to you better then I could.
I felt like I was pushing it a bit sharing another users prediction however I thought it was a really important prediction that is coming up soon so I should do so.
