With that being said there're several different approaches one may take to achieve a particular type of AI. Ideally a Super Intelligence AI system will comprise the characteristics of a AGI and Narrow AI. This would mean that a super intelligent AI system will contain cognitive, emotional, social intelligence and also be self-aware. …
