How Clever Are You Really? Scientists Can Now Accurately Measure Human Intelligence

How clever do you think you are? Normally we would try and define such a benchmark using something like the IQ test. However a new MRI scanning technique could force us to ditch the test as scientists have achieved a world first in attempting to define and measure human intelligence. Professor Jianfeng Feng and his team in the Department of Computer Science conducted the groundbreaking research at Warwick University. The aim of the research was to discover how intellect works in the human brain and thereby inform how Artificial Intelligence (AI) works in the future. The study used MRI scans to observe thousands of brains and was only possible due to recent developments in brain imaging techniques. They conclusively found that the more variable a person’s brain is – how frequently you…
