Current average AGI estimate

We have invited many notable people and companies in AI to give us estimates for when they think AGI (artificial general intelligence) will be achieved. We then average the estimates to provide this countdown. When date ranges are given as estimates we use the lower end for our countdown – so the average estimate is a bit more aggressive than the actual estimates might suggest.

Definitions of AGI will vary but we will leave this countdown open to each contributor’s own interpretation of the precise meaning.

The current estimate based on 3 contributions is 2025-10-01.


This is by all means not a rigorous scientific approach to the topic of AGI and a formal approach to estimating its “arrival”” date. Also, of course, the topic of AGI itself is not well defined – if it can be precisely defined at all. This is, however, an interesting topic in general and therefore we considered it worthwhile exploring.


Here’s the list of current contributors (we have many more invitations pending via Twitter DMs) to the estimate, including some thoughts about the estimate, when provided:

Jacob Valdez – 2023-12-31

Elon Musk? (invitation for an estimate has been sent)

Robert Scoble? (invitation for an estimate has been sent)

Geoffrey Hinton – 2028-04-01 (5 to 20, down from 20 to 50, years as of March 2023, source)

Steve Digital – 2025-01-01

”2022, especially, and the prior years have shown tremendous progress in AI. 2023 will easily trump that in my opinion and with further leaps in emergent behaviours and abilities I expect AGI to be with us no later than the beginning of 2025. This is a very optimistic timeline. I am also weary of what that will mean for humankind but I have hopes that we will use AGI to dramatically improve everyone’s lives worldwide.”

Other contributions

After inviting many people we did also get feedback that basically stated that this article is ridiculous or at least not well-defined enough to warrant an attempt at estimating a date or date range. They are totally legitimate and basically correct, but that didn’t stop us from exploring the topic. Here are some examples.
