Artificial Intelligence (AI) is something that every tech giant is talking about and people are already picturizing the doomsday. However, the AI is still not possess much intelligence that we believe, the latest studies show that Google’ AI and Apple's Siri have IQ less than a six-year-old child.
A team of three Chinese researchers shared their research results which was led by the Yong Shi, executive deputy director of the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Research Center on Fictitious Economy and Data Science. Thes research titled "Intelligence Quotient and Intelligence Grade of Artificial Intelligence" reveals that both AI-powered tools from Google and Apple posses IQ level lower than a 6-year-old human kid. The research was submitted Cornell University Library last week.
Google’s AI was recorded to have 47.28 of IQ in 2016 whereas Apple’s Siri had 23.94. Researchers found that a normal human adult (18 years) acquire an IQ of 97 while a 6-year kid has IQ of 55.5. The IQ level of the Google’s AI and Apple’s Siri is less than that of a 6-year human child. So, till now if you ever thought that AI could beat a human in solving problems that was totally wrong.
“Although artificial intelligence is currently one of the most interesting areas in scientific research, the potential threats posed by emerging AI systems remain a source of persistent controversy. To address the issue of AI threat, this study proposes a standard intelligence model that unifies AI and human characteristics in terms of four aspects of knowledge, i.e., input, output, mastery, and creation” stated in the research paper.
Google’s AI came a long way from IQ score of 26.5 in 2014 and Microsoft from 13.5, whereas Apple’s Siri has IQ half that of the Google’s AI. However, All theses AI bots or apps need to cover a long distance to beat even a six-year-old child. Almost every tech giants including Google, Microsoft, and even Facebook are exploring the AI to experience its true potential.
