Scientists have built an artificial intelligence system that has performed as well as in intelligence tests as a young child. The ConceptNet 4 system has been put through a verbal IQ test, getting a score that is seen as “average for a four-year-old child”. The AI is built using natural language processing tools, which allow to it to understand words in the same way that humans do. That was combined with some other software that allowed it to understand and then answer questions. In the introduction to a paper on their results, the scientists write: “The ConceptNet system scored a WPPSI-III VIQ that is average for a four-year-old child, but below average for 5 to 7 year-olds. Large variations among subtests indicate potential areas of improvement. “In particular, results were…
