«– HUMANOBS.ORG main page | AGI Summer School - Main Page

We have sorted the reading material for the Summer School in a way intended to 
help prioritizing which papers to read first. Even though the second-level of 
importance is called "Recommended Readings" these are essentially just as 
important as those in the "Required Readings" list, and we strongly advice that 
as many of these papers be read before the Summer School starts. In case some 
of you are behind on readings, we have also listed for each presentation which 
papers are most important (see link to Lecturers below).
