AGI Start-ups, AGI Researchers and Research Institutes List - Vicarious, DeepMind, Numenta, AdaptiveAI, DiffBot, OpenCog, Baidu ...


"Strategic" resumes for anyone in this area who wants to watch and check what the competition in the AI/AGI race is doing. The list is to be continued, extended with the many research institutes in Universities, individual interesting researchers/philosophers etc., and presented better, maybe in a dedicated web site. Please add comments to include your team or project. Mistakes and outdated info are possible.
