What Are the AI Stages?

The potential development trajectory of AI technology is still under debate. Based on capabilities, AI evolution is typically divided into three broad categories:

  1. Narrow AI. These AI systems are designed to perform specific tasks by simulating elements of human consciousness, emotion, or general intelligence. Examples include chatbots like ChatGPT or digital assistants like Siri or Alexa.
  2. General AI. At this future stage, AI would be able to understand and learn across different contexts, comparable to a human in its reasoning and learning capabilities.
  3. Superintelligent AI. AI will surpass human abilities in creativity and emotional intelligence. This is a speculative concept, as researchers are still unsure if this stage of development is attainable.

It's important to emphasize that most theories regarding AI development are philosophical and not grounded in scientific evidence.
