One of the ultimate goals of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the creation of a technological entity that can think, interact, respond, and perhaps even have consciousness and emotion equal to or exceeding that of humans. These so-called Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) systems would co-exist with humans in a way that rivals the abilities of their human counterparts. For many AI researchers, AGI seems to be a lofty goal achievable only in the far future, but for AI startup Kindred Systems, they see immediate opportunity in taking practical steps towards the reality of AGI. Kindred Systems, based in the US and Canada, is creating real-world machines that interact with their environment and other humans with human-like intelligence. They are aiming to solve the problem of building intelligence by focusing on AI systems that work with humans in the real world, and not only with data.
