Smith L (2012) Perceptual time, perceptual reality, and general intelligence. In: Bach J, Goertzel B & Ikle M (eds.) Artificial General Intelligence: 5th International Conference, AGI 2012, Oxford, UK, December 8-11, 2012. Proceedings. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 7716. 5th International Conference, AGI 2012, Oxford, UK, 08.12.2012-11.12.2012. Berlin Heidelberg: Springer, pp. 292-301.;

Perceptual time is a critical aspect of how humans (and probably animals too) perceive the world. It underlies general intelligence, particularly where that general intelligence is about interacting with the world on an everyday basis. We discuss what is meant by the perceptual instant, and how this may be important for (artificial and real) general intelligence. Lastly, we briefly discuss how perceptual time might be included in an artificial system which might display general intelligence.
