“A group of specialists has quite recently distributed the results of an IQ test given to an artificial intelligence (AI) system called ConceptNet. ConceptNet is an open-source figuring undertaking keep running by a division of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The IQ test was the very same as that given to people. Also, as per the outcomes, the PC scored the same as a young child. The team from the University of Illinois at Chicago, who carried out the test said “We found that the psychometric test gives a WPPSI-III VIQ to ConceptNet 4 that is equivalent to that of an average four-year old. The performance of the system fell when compared to older children, and it compared poorly to seven year olds.” In the full study, the researchers clarify that advancements in natural language tools (the same tech behind Siri in your iPhone) could enhance the score later on. Keeping in mind it has taken around 60 years of AI exploration to achieve this level; the exponential development implies that machines could turn out to be exceptionally smart, rapidly. Tech illuminators like Elon Musk have officially expressed worry at the propelling rate of AI. He said “The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most. Please note that I am normally super pro technology and have never raised this issue until recent months. This is not a case of crying wolf about something I don’t understand.” In addition, as indicated by a recent study, about portion of Brits are concerned that increments in manmade brainpower will mean less occupations later on. In any case, there are a lot of researchers who trust that propelling AI will advantage mankind. There is even a paper by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence clarifying exploration needs for the eventual fate of the science ( via zumfeed.com ).
