Google researchers decided it would be fun to take a look at how well its artificial intelligence systems would score on an IQ test. Don't take this too seriously as AI is still in its infancy, but Google says its AI was able to core 47.28 in 2016.
For comparison, Apple's Siri scored 23.9, Microsoft's Bing achieved 31.98 and Chinese Internet giant Baidu managed to hit 32.92. By its own measurements, Google's AI is slightly below a six-year old human's IQ of 55.5.
The researchers also propose a model for grading the intelligence of AI systems and assessing technology in the context of the threat it poses to humans. Their model unifies AI and human characteristics around four areas of knowledge, including "input, output, mastery, and creation".
The AI intelligence model ranges from a first-grade system, which can't exchange information with humans, to an almighty God-like sixth-grade system feared by Elon Musk, which "continuously innovates and creates new knowledge, with I/O ability, knowledge mastery, and application ability that all approach infinite values as time goes on".
