Monett, D. and Lewis, C. W. P. (2019). A brief history of intelligence, and what it means for the future of AI. Expert article in Techerati, March 2019.
"Our understanding of intelligence could be strengthened and reinforced if we had well-defined definitions of intelligence, the advantages of which would be: a better educated general public, more synergy between politics and society (since the understanding of what (machine) intelligence is will diminish the fears of technological innovation), as well as enhanced understanding and knowledge of other capabilities that could contribute to the development of advanced intelligent systems and human-computer interactions."

Written evidence on AI: AGISI's comments to the UK government
We submitted our comments on AI to the Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, UK Parliament. The Call for Evidence on Artificial Intelligence asked for written evidence on the current state of AI, the factors technical or societal that will accelerate or hinder its development, and its impact on society, among other topics.
