Do you imagine an AGI as being able to do something like this (without any prior knowledge or explicitly coded support):

- Be taught the rules of chess verbally with a small number of visually demonstrated examples

- Play a handful of games

- Explain the rules correctly to someone else, or another instance of itself, in a similar way

This seems like it would fall under "any cognitive task" but feels much farther off than 2029 to me. If I had to bet I'd say it wasn't even achievable without being explicitly coded for at some level.

Do you expect a radical transformation of the civilization after the development of AGI? Like massive automation or space colonization or something of that kind?
