CascadiaPrime - Benefits of Artificial General Intelligence

Artificial General Intelligence seems likely to alter almost every field of human endevour producing wide benefits for society. Nevertheless, established players will fight tooth and nail to maintain their priviledged positions.

Drawing a boundary between the benefits of narrow AI and and the benefits artificial general intelligence is likely impractical.

At least initially then, this section will not attempt to discriminate how the benefits will occur but simply to create a general list of examples that will collectively illustrate probable areas where benefits will occur. Since this includes almost every area of human endeavor the list will be extensive, if not to begin with comprehensive.
