We’re creating an open source framework for Artificial General Intelligence, intended to one day express general intelligence at the human level and beyond. Read more That is: We’re undertaking a serious effort to build a thinking machine. We’ve developed a detailed plan, possess the ability to execute it, and we’re proceeding with the hard work step-by-step. As compared to most academic and industry AI research, the OpenCog project has a very different focus. We are not centrally concerned with building more accurate classification algorithms, or more efficient computer vision systems, or better language processing or information retrieval algorithms, etc. Neither are we centrally concerned with building a program that performs only one specific task like play chess, diagnose diseases, answer trivia questions, or drive a car. We are concerned with generic intelligence and the inter-related cognitive processes it entails. OpenCog is a moderate-sized and active project with: a team in Hong Kong working on intelligent game characters a new OpenCog lab in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with a staff of 5 developers in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Australasia, working for various employers and applying OpenCog on commercial and government projects many fantastic volunteer developers Our vision is a huge one and we are eagerly recruiting new developers! OpenCog & OpenCog Prime OpenCog has two overlapping aspects: creation of a generic framework for advanced AI and AGI work implementation of a specific AGI design, within the OpenCog framework See also About OpenCog and the OpenCog Prime long-term roadmap.
