Today's AI is equivalent to the IQ of 4 years aged child

Human goals in the field of technology is creating a machine with the intelligence to facilitate human life. But who would have thought, the machines with Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly getting smarter.

More recently trials conducted against the best AI systems with human intelligence. As quoted from Science Alert on Thursday, October 8, 2015, the level of intelligence of the AI ​​that is now on a par with the level of intelligence of 4 years old children!

A series of tests was conducted University of Illinois in the United States, under the direction Stellan Ohlsson. As a result, the cutting edge AI systems have an average intelligence of a toddler. When age level was raised to 7 years, the software can not resist.

IQ tests are one way to find out a person's intelligence. Of course, the computer has a number of capabilities beyond human in some respects, for example counting. This exam is done to examine a person's ability rationally to their environment -- but in terms of introspection, the software is still lagging far behind.

ConceptNet, an AI engine developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since the 1990s, is one of the testing system. These computers scored the highest for the vocabulary and similarity. While the average results for the receipt of information, and poor in reasoning and understanding of the word.

IQ tests have the flexibility and variety in format -- depending on age. Questions like "where you could find a penguin?" Or "What is the house?" could be one of the questions. But the question to identify something based on the instructions, or questions like "why do we shake hands?" Will make the computer overwhelmed.

In some cases, the research team had to suss out the question in some way to see the responses given by the ConceptNet system -- but the question remains puzzling. For example, when asked, "This is an animal of Africa" ​​and "this is a brownish yellow big cat", the computer answering several possible answers, namely dogs, farm, creatures, home, and cats.

Stellan Ohlsson told the MIT Technology Review said, "The humans common sense at least lead to animals, and also understand that if say it is a cat, the only kind of cat are discussed."

However, important breakthroughs in the AI popping up quickly. Experts suspect advances in machine learning capability and natural language (such as Siri, Google Now, and Cortana) will bring AI thinking human beings better in these next few years. These findings have been published in arXiv.org. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCEALERT]
