Futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews Peter Voss, CEO and founder of Aigo.ai.

They talk about how the field of artificial general intelligence has evolved, what intelligence really is, whether machines have it and what it takes to bring true progress in this field. They also delve into chat bots.

The takeaway is that artificial general intelligence has an interesting future but it is not immediate. Whether an entire generation of software developers are on the wrong path, is uncertain, but clearly, deeply understanding language and especially understanding context has a long ways to go for existing machines. Maybe just as well, because humans are not even adjusting to statistical AI’s predictive capabilities.

Peter Voss

Founder, Aigo.ai

Peter Voss is a Serial Entrepreneur, Engineer, Inventor and a Pioneer in Artificial Intelligence.

Peter started out in electronics engineering, but quickly moved into software. After developing a comprehensive ERP software package, Peter took his first software company from a zero to 400-person IPO in seven years.

Fueled by the fragile nature of software, Peter embarked on a 20-year journey to study intelligence (how it develops in humans, how to measure it, and current AI efforts), and to replicate it in software. His research culminated in the creation of a natural language intelligence engine that can think, learn, and reason -- and adapt to, and grow with the user. He even coined the term ‘AGI’(Artificial General Intelligence) with fellow luminaries in the space.

Peter founded SmartAction.ai in 2009, which developed the first AGI-based call center automation technology. Now, in his latest venture, Aigo.ai, he is taking that technology a step further with the commercialization of the second generation of his ‘Conversational AI’ technology with a bold mission of providing hyper-intelligent hyper-personal assistants for everyone.

In addition to being an entrepreneur, engineer, inventor and AI pioneer, Peter often writes and presents on various philosophical topicsincluding rational ethics, free will and artificial minds; and is deeply involved with futurism and radical life-extension.
