Suggested Education for Future AGI Researchers

Pei Wang

The following list is a partial education plan for students interested in the research of Artificial General Intelligence. It includes materials for roughly 25 one-semester courses.

Notes:

  1. The opinions expressed here are highly personal. Not only are the topics and reading materials selected according to my opinion, but also there are my own works included wherever relevant (they are distinguished from the others using square brackets).
  2. This list is not intended to cover all relevant topics, but what I think as the most important. Some crucial decisions are on what NOT to include, as well as on how to allocate time among the topics. Therefore, adding new topics into the list is not always a good idea.
