Researchers using MRI to quantify human intelligence

Credit: Wikimedia Commons Human intelligence is being defined and measured for the first time ever by researchers at the University of Warwick. Led by Professor Jianfeng Feng in the Department of Computer Science, studies at Warwick and in China have been recently undertaken to quantify the brain’s dynamic functions, and identify how different parts of the brain interact with each other at different times – namely, to discover how intellect works. Professor Jianfeng finds that the more variable a brain is, and the more its different parts frequently connect with each other, the higher a person’s IQ and creativity are. More accurate understanding of human intelligence could lead to future developments in artificial intelligence (AI). Currently, AI systems do not process the variability and adaptability that is vital, as evidenced…
