Some people start worrying about the fact of development of more and more intelligent systems. Today machines are able to play chess, do arithmetic, recognize patterns, communicate with humans and work in service sector. However a range of capabilities extends.
The team of scientists from the University of Illinois (Chicago) and artificial intellect (AI) scientific group from Hungary run a research project of AI capabilities. The AI system is called ConceptNet and is run at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The results of the experiment show that the new AI system scored IQ test that is average for a four-year-old child. The researchers have used WPPSI-III IQ test, which includes 14 subtests developed for children from 2.5 to 7 years old.
Taking into consideration that it took 60 years to develop AI machine with intellect of four-year-old child, the results of the last tests can seem quite modest. However the researchers are sure that AI is being developed much faster than earlier and some futuristic expectations might come true very soon.
