A Definition and a Test for Human-Level Artificial Intelligence


Despite recent advances in many application-specific domains, we do not know how to build a human-level artificial intelligence (HLAI). We conjecture that learning from others’ experience with the language is the essential characteristic that distinguishes human intelligence from the rest. Humans can update the action-value function with the verbal description as if they experience states, actions, and corresponding rewards sequences firsthand. In this paper, we present a classification of intelligence according to how individual agents learn and propose a definition and a test for HLAI. The main idea is that language acquisition without explicit rewards can be a sufficient test for HLAI.


Three levels of intelligence

Learning with language means that the symbolic description brings the same changes to the model comparable to direct experiences.
