ASTRID is a real Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), being developed as a proof-of-concept for Machine Consciousness. Main discriminating (provable) traits of the system are: self awareness, intentionality, emotion-based responses and internal deliberation. The system does not use any pre-assembled knowledgebase, answers-list or queries to online information systems (e.g. Wikipedia). Responses are formulated completely by the system, based on previously learned information.
