In recent years, a breakthrough has been made in infant level AI due to the acquisition of representation, which was realized by deep learning. By this, the construction of AI that specializes in a specific task that does not require a high-level understanding of language is becoming a possibility. The primary remaining issue for the realization of human-level AI is the realization of general intelligence capable of solving flexible problems by combining highly reusable knowledge. Therefore, this research paper explores the possibility of approaching artificial general intelligence with such abilities based on mesoscopic connectome.
