T-720-ATAI-2018 Readings & Study Material


This material is generally ordered by specificity (both within and between headings), starting with the general topic of what intelligence is, progressing towards good old-fashioned AI (aka constructionist AI) and then onward towards artificial general intelligence. Within each topic the papers are ordered by importance, the most important first.

The recommended minimum number of papers to be read in each category is listed in brackets [ a,b ] after the title, where a refers to the necessary mandatory number of papers to be read, and b refers to the recommended absolute minimum number (papers are ordered from most to least important, so start counting from the top). This means you are expected to read at the very least around 50 papers in this course, so that comes out to at least 3-4 papers per week (5 recommended). Keep at it and you'll be fine!

Note: Assigned readings should be read before class. Alternatively, as a less desirable alternative, readings may be read after class. Do not attempt to read them during class. Reading the assigned readings not at all should generally be avoided.
