Artificial intelligence program ConceptNet matches 4-year-old child in IQ test

Artificial intelligence researchers have developed a system capable of matching the IQ of an average four-year-old child in psychometric tests. ConceptNet 4, the open-source AI project used in the tests, has been under development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since the 1990’s. The study, Measuring an Artificial Intelligence System’s Performance on a Verbal IQ Test for Young Children, reveals the results of verbal test questions, such as “Why do we shake hands?” and “Where can you find a penguin”. While ConceptNet 4 was able to score test results that are average for a four-year-old, its lack of word reasoning and comprehension skills meant that the wrong answers given were entirely unlike the answers given by children of that age. For example, to the question “why do we shake…
