Building an AGI/SGI (Artificial General Intelligence / Super General Intelligence) – Pre Draft 001

After looking over some of the material over the last few weeks, I believe that a major step in the software part of the problem of building an AGI has been done and the hardware needed to run an AGI needs to be built.

I termed this a ‘pre draft’ since this is a very general outline of what is being planned.

I define an AGI as a machine that would have the abilities of a typical person and test around 100 IQ. It would be able to pass the Turning test with no problems and do anything else that a typical person could do who was limited to interacting with the real world through a computer interface or connections.

From what I can tell, the typical person has about 1,000 billion neurons with multiple connections between each and the hardware for an AGI project should target the same. The simple form is one neuron would be like a CPU with its own memory cache.

I see such a project where the hardware and software would be improved in steps, where as the hardware expanded, the software would perform better, which would then be improved with more or faster hardware; etc; until at some point the combined hardware and software would be working as an AGI. I also envision that by improvements in hardware and software beyond an AGI is that eventually the system would improve to the point that it would become a SGI (Super General Intelligence) ; a machine that would have the capability of multiple people all in one system.

My ‘general feeling’ is that the first step for hardware could be done for about $60 million to $70 million USD with about 10% of that amount needed each year for operational issues; such as lease space for the equipment, electricity and cooling, system administrators, repairs, etc. I expect the costs of such a system to decline at least 10% per year minimum as the hardware improves, becomes faster, takes less space and electricity to run and better programming  makes less hardware needed.

The end result of this expenditure of money would be a system that would be an AGI and having the same abilities as one person with an IQ of 100.

I expect such a project to have at least three major iterations or changes as the project is going along. The end result of the capabilities of one person for a cost of $60 million to $70 million is not very cost effective but once one AGI was made, subsequent ones could be made at lower and lower costs over time until they were very cost efficient and give people capabilities that had never existed before in computing intelligence.

Upgrade Server/Web Site to CENTOS 7

Server upgrade. Going from godaddy.com Virtual Private Server (VPS) GEN3 with CENTOS 6 to GEN4 with CENTOS 7.

For a while I had been trying to figure out how to do an upgrade from a godaddy GEN3 to GEN4 VPS (Virtual Private Server). I had been trying to use the upgrade tool within WHS on the server to move accounts. For whatever reason, I could never get it to move properly BUT today I found that if I went to the CPanel for the website and did a Backup on the old server of all the files, and then used this to do a restore from the file under WHS, that the account and everything else was there just as it was on the old server. The last part seemed to be to just change the IP address on the A record to the new sever and everything appears to be find.

The web site and domain name the-competent-man.com seems to be working fine. The other domain name with any content, musicquest446.com seems to be going to the old VPS so somewhere there I must need to change the A record on the DNS for that domain name.

I think I got things working and we will see on the 15th when I do not renew on the GEN3 server if everything keeps working, it was somewhat confusing as to how to make the change but things seem ok and working.

Good Luck and Take Care,
