Abstract

Psychometric AGI (PAGI) is the brand of AGI that anchors AGI science and engineering to explicit tests, by insisting that for an information-processing (i-p) artifact to be rationally judged generally intelligent, creative, wise, and so on, it must pass a suitable, well-defined test of such mental power(s). Under the tent of PAGI, and inspired by prior thinkers, we introduce the Piaget-MacGyver Room (PMR), which is such that, an i-p artifact can credibly be classified as general-intelligent if and only if it can succeed on any test constructed from the ingredients in this room.
