Human-Level Intelligence

Human-Level Intelligence is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on Artificial Intelligence at and beyond Human level. Is it possible to give a computer a “real” mind? If yes, then how to implement it, and what challenges are waiting for us? We invite both practical as well as theoretical papers from all areas of Artificial General Intelligence, Machine Learning, Humanoid Robotics, Computational Neuroscience, Brain studies that relate to intelligence and consciousness, as well as Philosophy of Mind. Different from other journals, we welcome new ideas or frameworks of models that stimulate discussion in a new direction, while it is optional to give details of formal experiments.

Criteria for publication

Publication of research articles by is dependent primarily on their validity and coherence, as judged by peer reviewers, who are also asked whether the writing is comprehensible and how interesting they consider the article to be.

Speed of publication

We offer a very fast publication schedule while maintaining rigorous peer review; all articles must be submitted online, and peer review is managed fully electronically (articles are distributed in PDF form, which is automatically generated from the submitted files). Articles will be published electronically in manuscript form immediately upon acceptance. A fully structured web version, and accompanying laid out PDF, will be published within a few weeks of acceptance.


As an electronic-based journal, we offer authors the opportunity to publish large data sets, large numbers of illustrations and moving pictures, to display data in a form that can be read directly by other software packages so as to allow readers to manipulate the data for themselves and to create all relevant links.
