When it comes to artificial intelligence, Siri is one of the most well-known names. But how intelligent is Siri? According to a recent study, the answer is not very.
The study, conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, tested the IQ of various artificial intelligence systems, including Siri, Microsoft Corp.’s (MSFT) Bing, and Baidu. The results showed that Siri’s IQ fell well below the others, at 23.9. Bing and Baidu scored higher, at 31.98 and 32.92, respectively.
For comparison’s sake, the average 18-year-old has an IQ of 97, according to the study. This means that Siri’s IQ is far lower than that of the average human.
The study also found that the IQ of artificial intelligence systems is largely dependent on the amount of data they have access to. The more data they have, the higher their IQ. This means that if Siri were given access to more data, its IQ could potentially increase.
So, while Siri may not be the smartest AI system out there, it is still a useful tool for many people. It can answer questions, provide directions, and even set reminders. It may not be as intelligent as a human, but it can still be a helpful assistant.
