Let's discuss this. I always thought IQ measured how fast a "brain" works, but that is apparently not the case. What do you think?

Intelligence is measured ability to solve various problems.

We have artificial intelligence that could exceed natural intelligence at various tasks, simply because machines can use brute processing speed (brute force) to outrun human problem solving.

However, intelligence does not equal consciousness. There isn't, and never going to be, artificial consciousness. I can elaborate on it but that would be off topic.

Greater than pie itself.

I am hectopascal compared to Computer-sama.

IQ is a measurement of human intelligence through standardized testing. A computer can't take an IQ test, so its IQ is 0.

If the test is based on the recognition of patterns (given one pattern, produce the correct answer in the series) then machines can still do it.

I suppose, it depends on the person who is using it.

IQ is based on cognitive thinking of human's, so for a computer to be able to do that you'll have to write software for it that can do that. So out of box it has 0, but can do better if you make software that can do it for you

Well, we have weak AI which is basically what is stated above and then there's artificial general intelligence which can be applied to a wide range of problems instead of a narrow field. A weak AI can beat chess masters but not go masters since there are simply too many possibilities to brute force compute through although there has recently been an AI that can rapidly learn to play go and has beaten masters at go without brute force computation which is a step.

You'd have to define what you mean by IQ though. If you mean Intelligence Quotient as it was originally used, the machine in question would have to be measured against other machines of a similar background and this might not require much more than weak AI. To compete with humans though in deviation units, lol. They would likely have savant-like IQs of well below 70 despite their incredible calculation abilities. I don't know of any machines that actually has the programming to take those tests well however.

If you mean intelligence as a whole, as Marilyn Vos Savant (IQ 186, columnist and well involved with IQ societies) states, intelligence as a whole has so many factors that attempts to measure it are useless.

Here we have a podcast expanding on a bit more about this.

One mention of interest is that Albert Einstein who invented the speciai theory of relativity had actually challenged Henry Poinecare to see who could create it first and they finished at around the same time. They had a little spat over who finished first. So we have another genius who was a famous Mathematician/Physicist at the time and competed well with Einstein, guess what his IQ is? He scored the IQ of a moron.

Wow, you're serious and not lewd. I think I love you RedExodus. Marry me. Let's do it.

uh IQ in Computer?
A dirt worm is smarter than a computer when it comes to autonomy.
But it is more autonomous than me.

Edit: Use Win32 api, and you will find how smart a computer really is.

Considering you could program in all of the questions on an IQ test and finish the test in a couple minutes, whatever the max number is.

A computer can't induce reason, properly, so for now it's as dumb as wood.

From: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2102577/A-genius-born-New-programme-intelligent-96-cent-humans-IQ-150.html


'Genius' computer with an IQ of 150 is 'more intelligent' than 96 per cent of humans
Software uses mixture of logic and 'human-like' thinking
Score is classified as 'genius'
It could 'spot patterns' in financial data


A computer has become the first to be classed as a 'genius' after scoring 150 in an IQ test.

The average score for people is 100. A score of 150 ranks the artificial intelligence programme among the top four per cent of humans.

The programme uses a mixture of mathematical logic and 'human-like' thinking, enabling it to outperform previous software on IQ tests.



Artificial intelligence? The high-IQ software uses a mix of computer logic and 'human like' thinking to achieve higher scores than previous software

Even advanced maths programmes usually score below 100.

The software was designed by a team led by researcher Claes Strannegård at the University of Gothenburg. His aim was to make a programme that 'thinks' like a person.

'We're trying to make programmes that can discover the same types of patterns that humans can see,' he says.
IQ tests are based on two types of problems - seeing visual patterns and guessing number sequences.

The Swedish research group believes that number sequence problems are only partly mathematics – psychology is important too.

Strannegård says 'One, two - what comes next? Most people would say 3, but it could also be a repeating sequence like 1, 2, 1 or a doubling sequence like 1, 2, 4. Neither of these alternatives is more mathematically correct than the others. What it comes down to is that most people have learned the 1-2-3 pattern.'

he group is therefore using a psychological model of human patterns in their software.

They have integrated a mathematical model that models human-like The group has improved the programme that specialises in number sequences to the point where its score implies an IQ of at least 150.

'Our programmes are beating the conventional math programmes because we are combining mathematics and psychology.'
The programme's 'human-like' thinking could have uses outside IQ tests. It can spot 'patterns' in any information that has a human component, such as financial data.

'Our method can potentially be used to identify patterns in any data with a psychological component, such as financial data. But it is not as good at finding patterns in more science-type data, such as weather data, since then the human psyche is not involved,' says Strannegård.



I would think the IQ of a computer would depend on how it was programmed to solve IQ-based queries. It's basically as "smart" as an abacus.
