Ciao once more.

Today, we're venturing into an arena that's been the subject of much debate and speculation in the realm of technology and intelligence - Artificial General Intelligence, or AGI. With the frenetic pace at which technology has been advancing, the advent of AGI - a machine capable of human-level thinking - is becoming an increasingly pertinent question. This shift, like the impending change in the entertainment industry, is set to revolutionize the way we understand and interact with intelligence. So, strap in as we explore the question: "When will AGI be upon us?"

As we delve into the pulsating heart of artificial intelligence, we find ourselves grappling with the concept of AGI, a machine that not only matches but potentially surpasses human intelligence. The consensus among AI experts is that the singularity, the point at which AGI is achieved, is likely to occur before the end of this century. With advancements in Large Language Models (LLMs), the timeline for the arrival of AGI is becoming increasingly compressed, with some experts speculating that it could happen in less than 20 years​.

Like the entertainment industry being reshaped by user-generated content and real-time rendering, the AI landscape is being transformed by the promise of AGI. A vast body of surveys conducted among AI researchers and experts suggests a majority expectation of AGI's arrival before 2060.

Just as users of advanced technology like Dall-E 2, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney have the power to generate their own worlds, AI entrepreneurs are making their own predictions about when singularity will occur. Renowned figures such as Louis Rosenberg and Ray Kurzweil have projected that singularity will take place around 2030 and 2045 respectively. These estimations reflect an optimism that is slightly more pronounced than that of AI researchers.

However, it's important to bear in mind that, much like the predictions surrounding the end of celebrity relevance, estimates about AGI have had a history of being overly optimistic. AI pioneer Herbert A. Simon famously predicted in 1965 that machines would be capable of doing any work a man can do within twenty years. This over-optimism has contributed to a more cautious approach towards predicting AGI in recent times.

Just as the transition from celebrities to user-generated characters is inevitable given the evolution of technology, the ascendancy of machines over human intelligence seems to be a matter of when, not if. With human intelligence remaining static and machine intelligence growing exponentially, the balance is set to tip in favor of the machines unless a hard limit to their intelligence is discovered.

As we approach the limits of classical computing, emerging technologies like quantum computing offer a glimpse into the future of AI. Quantum computing, with its ability to evaluate different states simultaneously, could revolutionize the training of neural networks and pave the way for the advent of AGI. This is akin to the changing landscape of entertainment, where the rise of user-generated content is set to replace traditional filmmakers, writers, and producers​.

The future of AGI, much like the future of entertainment, is riddled with excitement, unpredictability, and infinite possibilities. As we move towards a new era of intelligence, it's imperative to embrace the change and explore the opportunities that come with it. As the lines between human and machine intelligence continue to blur, the question remains - are we ready for the dawn of AGI? Only time will tell.
