Abstract

This Capstone applies Popper’s Three-worlds paradigm to the academic discourse on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). It intends to assess how this paradigm can be used to frame the opinions of scientists and philosophers on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and what it reveals about the way the topic of AGI is approached from the fields of the Sciences and the Humanities. This has been achieved by means of a Literature Review reporting the opinions of main philosophers and scientists and by analysing two main projects – project CYC and project SOAR- advanced as possible ways to achieve AGI. As a result, most academics from the field of Science seem to better fit views on AGI interpreted through the lens of Popper’s World 2, the world of the mind. On the contrary, most philosophers seem to better fit views on AGI interpreted through the lens of Popper’s world 3, the world of the products of the human mind such as theories, knowledge and ideas. As a suggestion, this Thesis advocates the promotion of interdisciplinarity and discussion among the different academic fields.
