Scientists who created an IQ rest for AI say Google is smarter than its colleagues, Bing and Siri. However, it has an IQ less than a 6–year–old child.
Google’s results are 47.28, as it was stated after the test in 2016. The information and test were provided by the researchers Feng Liu, Yong Shi, and Ying Liu.
Usually, a 6–year–old human has an IQ of 55.5, and as you can see, Google’s is a little bit lower, but Siri’s is twice as low – 23.9. Siri loses to Bing (Microsoft) – which is 31.98 and Baidu – 32.92. All the results are less than the IQ of an 18–year–old – 97. In 2014, similar research was made by two of these three researchers, and Google’s IQ was only 26.5 and Baidu – 23.5.
The findings depict that the situation with IQ for Google and other AI systems has essentially improved for the last two years. However, it is still far from the IQ of a regular 6–year–old kid.
The research also develops and offers a special grading system for the AI’s level of intelligence that indicates the possible damage it can cause to humans. This system involves 4 criteria for characterization of different fields of knowledge: mastery creation, input, and output.
This AI grading system has different ranges: from the first, which cannot communicate with people, to the sixth – the AI has all the powers and controls itself. Elon Musk warns people about the sixth range, which evolves, innovates, and knows how to acquire knowledge, and how to find infinite source of energy.
First grade AI systems are as informative and interactive as any unloving object, like a table or apple. The second grade involves smart fridges, TVs, airconditioning, and all types that have some computing involved, have access to program information, but cannot learn by default.
The third grade is about smartphones and computers that can evolve through updates. The fourth–grade concerns systems, like Google Brain, Baidu Brain, and RoboEarth, as they can adjust according to the information processed in the cloud.
Researchers say humans have another type of natural AI that has a fifth grade, as humans can create something new, acquire and analyze information, which is impossible for the systems of lower grades.
Using this gradation, the researchers classify AlphaGo from Alphabet (the company Google originates from) corresponding to the third grade, as it is still in the developing stage. Though it has beat humans at Go chess game, using extraordinary strategies, still it cannot be viewed as creative, as it needs humans to be trained. If people do not help this program, and if AlphaGo can search for chess information on its own, self–program, and reprogram itself, simulate chess contests, only in this case can it be said that it is evolving. However, AlphaGo cannot do something like this, and its level is classified as the third grade.
