Apple changed the game back when it introduced iPhone 4s as it featured Siri, the company’s digital AI assistant. No doubt, its capabilities were limited in the start but now it has better contextual awareness and improved language.
After around six years, the game of digital assistants has grown fierce thanks to the competition provided by other companies including Microsoft, Amazon, Google and the Samsung-the new arrival.
According to a new research at Cornell University which aimed to determine which AI assistant has the highest IQ, Google takes the lead, reports HotHardware.
Google’s AI assistant has an IQ of about 47.28 which slightly below the IQ of an average six-year-old child which is 55.5. On the other hand, Siri has an IQ of 23.9 which is comparatively very low.
In their quest to find out the IQ of the AI assistants, the Researchers Feng Liu, Yong Shi, and Ying Liu set tested and ranked the IQ of various natural and artificial intelligent systems, including humans, Google, Bing, Baidu, and Siri.
Siri’s IQ is even lower than Bing and Baidu which scored 31.98 and 32.92 respectively. In a paper published on ArXiv, the researchers wrote:
“Although this work is still in progress, the results so far indicate that the artificial-intelligence systems produced by Google, Baidu, and others have significantly improved over the past two years but still have certain gaps as compared with even a six-year-old child.”
