Roman v. Yampolskiy and Joshua Fox, Artificial General Intelligence and the Human Mental Model, Chapter 7 of Singularity Hypotheses.
“Hall* classifies future AGIs [Artificial General Intelligences], making the point that we should not expect AI systems to ever have closely humanlike distributions of ability, given that computers are already superhuman in some areas. So, despite its anthropocentric nature, his classification highlights the range of possibilities as well as the arbitrariness of the human intelligence point of reference. His classification encompasses
- hypohuman (infrahuman, less-than-human capacity),
- diahuman (human level capacities in some areas, but still not a general intelligence),
- parahuman (similar but not identical to humans, as for example, augmented humans),
- allohuman (as capable as humans, but in different areas),
- epihuman (slightly beyond the human level), and
- hyperhuman (much more powerful than human).”

I know what some of you are thinking. So and so is definitely hypo. Come on now. . .he’s talking about machines.
