A Challenge to Watson
Detterman, Douglas K.
Intelligence, v39 n2-3 p77-78 Mar-Apr 2011
Watson's Jeopardy victory raises the question of the similarity of artificial intelligence and human intelligence. Those of us who study human intelligence issue a challenge to the artificial intelligence community. We will construct a unique battery of tests for any computer that would provide an actual IQ score for the computer. This is the same challenge that humans face when they take an IQ test. The challenge has two levels. In the first, programmers could supply data and post hoc organizational algorithms to the computer. In the second, all algorithms would have to be provided before data are supplied and information would have to be self organizing as it is in humans.
