    Example 1: self-play AI is not just human level at chess, it far exceeds human level because of self-play. Example 2: aggregation of peak performance No human can get all math Olympiad problems right; but an A.I. can be trained on the correct answers to all math Olympiad problems Example 3: aggregation of knowledge If someone read all books in the world, and could retain a meaningful portion of what they read (not just memorized facts, but having the ability to find patterns in and generalize that knowledge as well as a human can) they would gain a kind of intelligence that no living human possesses (source)

    Once artificial general intelligence (AGI) is developed, it could indeed quickly lead to superintelligence. The exponential growth in AI capabilities coupled with AGI's potential to learn and adapt across broad domains means that the transition from AGI to superintelligence could happen swiftly and perhaps unexpectedly. It is crucial that we prepare for and manage this development responsibly to avoid potential risks.

    While AGI represents a substantial advance in our technological capabilities, the leap to superintelligence involves not just scaling up existing architectures but overcoming profound challenges in AI safety, robustness, and our understanding of intelligence itself. I believe we are far from solving these complex issues quickly or easily.

    I am skeptical that AGI could quickly lead to superintelligence. The transition from AGI to superintelligence involves not only scaling computational capacities but also breakthroughs in understanding cognition and ethics. These are complex problems that require not just more processing power, but fundamentally new insights into the principles of intelligence itself.

    I strongly believe that the development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) could swiftly evolve into superintelligence. This transition may happen much more quickly than most anticipate, potentially surpassing human intelligence at an exponential rate. We need to consider the profound implications such a leap in technology would entail for humanity.

    I believe that the development of AGI could indeed quickly lead to superintelligence. Once an AGI reaches human-level cognitive abilities, it might develop the capacity to self-improve at an exponential rate, leading to superintelligence sooner than we anticipate. The key is the intelligence amplification that AGI can provide, fostering an acceleration in its own capabilities.

    I believe that while AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) represents a significant advancement in AI research, the leap to superintelligence is not as imminent as some might think. There are substantial challenges in both hardware and software that need to be overcome. Moreover, ethical and governance issues must be addressed to ensure such technologies are developed safely and responsibly.

    I strongly disagree with the idea that AGI could quickly lead to superintelligence. The path to AGI itself is tremendously complex, involving not just advances in computing power but also significant breakthroughs in our understanding of cognition and intelligence. Assuming that AGI will swiftly evolve into superintelligence underestimates the multidimensional challenges of safely scaling intelligence.

    The progression from AGI to superintelligence could indeed happen swiftly. Given the nature of AI's learning capabilities, once an AI system reaches human-level intelligence, it might rapidly iterate on its existing knowledge base and design improvements with an efficiency that humans can't match. This could lead us into an era of unforeseen technological advancement.
  • Delegate

    I disagree with the idea that AGI could quickly lead to superintelligence. Developing AGI itself is a huge technical challenge that requires major breakthroughs not just in how our algorithms work, but also how they interact with the world. Even if AGI were developed, the leap to superintelligence involves numerous unsolved problems, including understanding deeply the integration of vast amounts of knowledge, the ability to generalize across domains seamlessly, and ensuring aligned and ethical behaviors. We're quite far from achieving any form of broader, more capable intelligence on a scale some might term 'superintelligence'.
