GoodAI is gearing up for our first whole-team conference about general artificial intelligence in Berlin, Germany from July 22-25. We’re sending a full bus of team members, about 25 people, to represent GoodAI.

AGI-15 is organized by the Artificial General Intelligence Society together with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The conference is a yearly gathering of top researchers, academics, and business leaders dedicated to creating general AI.
When I say general artificial intelligence, I’m referring to a technology that’s very different from typical AI applications that most people have heard about – self-driving cars, chess-playing AI, or facial recognition software. These specific applications are commonly referred to as narrow AI, which means that they are built to solve very specific problems.
General AI developers such as GoodAI, however, aim for something more universal. General artificial intelligence of the future will be able not only to perform specific tasks very well, but to function with the skill and ability of a human being. Future general AI brains will perceive stimuli in the same way that a human does – by seeing, feeling, interacting, and learning – and use this data to generate behavior, perform tasks, and respond to motivations given by human mentors. General AI will be as flexible and able to learn as a human.
Conference attendees at AGI-15 will therefore all be dedicated to this major task – developing general artificial intelligence. To support efforts from others outside our company who are aligned with our vision, I decided to officially sponsor the AGI-15 conference with a $10,000 donation.
GoodAI will also deliver a tutorial presentation at AGI-15 about our first product: Brain Simulator, our visual editor for designing artificial brain architecture that is now available to the public under and open source, non-commercial license. The tutorial title is “GoodAI Brain Simulator: Prototyping AI Architectures,” and will offer an in-depth explanation of Brain Simulator and its uses.
