Notable events in IQ testing AI models
|Oct/2023||BASIS superintelligence suite||Introducing BASIS, a new benchmark for measuring artificial superintelligence at and above IQ 180.|
|Aug/2023||GPT-4 TTCT = P99||Creativity. TTCT is gold standard for creativity testing (wiki), questions by Scholastic Testing Service confirmed private/not part of training dataset. GPT-4 scored in 99th percentile.|
|May/2023||PaLM 2 breaks 90% on WinoGrande (PDF, Google)||For the first time, a large language model has breached the 90% mark on WinoGrande, a ‘more challenging, adversarial’ version of Winograd, designed to be very difficult for AI. Fine-tuned PaLM 2 scored 90.9%; humans are at 94%.|
|May/2023||GPT-4 achieves 100% on ToM (Johns Hopkins)||Johns Hopkins: ‘GPT-4 reached ceiling accuracy of 100% [Two-Shot CoT plus SS Thinking]. Human performance in these scenarios was 87%‘|
|Mar/2023||GPT-4 = IQ 155||Clinical psychologist Eka Roivainen used the WAIS III to assess ChatGPT (assuming GPT-4): verbal IQ of 155 (P99.987).|
|Mar/2023||GPT-4 = IQ 152||GPT-4 had an IQ of 152 on a Verbal-Linguistic IQ Test via Prof David Rozado. This would place it in the 99.9th percentile.|
|Mar/2023||GPT-4 outperforms humans across various exams||OpenAI: GPT-4 ‘…we tested on a variety of benchmarks, including simulating exams that were originally designed for humans. We proceeded by using the most recent publicly-available tests (in the case of the Olympiads and AP free response questions) or by purchasing 2022–2023 editions of practice exams. We did no specific training for these exams.’|
|Feb/2023||GPT-3.5 mental state of 9yo child||Stanford: text-davinci-003 ‘solved 93% of [theory of mind] tasks, a performance comparable with that of nine-year-old children… ToM-like ability (thus far considered to be uniquely human) may have spontaneously emerged as a byproduct of language models’ improving language skills.’ [Update 15/Mar/2023: Adjusted down to seven-year-old for GPT-4 due to new, more conservative benchmarks.]|
|Feb/2023||Kosmos-1 ‘sees’ Raven’s IQ tests||‘Kosmos-1 is able to perceive abstract conceptual patterns in a nonverbal context, and then deduce the following element across multiple choices. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first time that a model can perform such zero-shot Raven IQ tests [with vision]… there is still a large performance gap [9.3% above chance] between the current model and the average level of adults…’|
|Jan/2023||ChatGPT = IQ 147||ChatGPT had an IQ of 147 on a Verbal-Linguistic IQ Test via Prof David Rozado. This would place it in the 99.9th percentile.|
|19/Dec/2022||GPT-3.5 outperforms humans on some tasks in symbolic Raven’s IQ tests||UCLA psychology tested GPT-3.5 [28/Nov/2022 release] using a symbolic model of Raven’s Progressive Matrices (RPM): ‘We found that GPT3 displayed a surprisingly strong capacity for abstract pattern induction [in text only, not vision], matching or even surpassing human capabilities in most settings’|
|4/Nov/2022||Anthropic’s testing on MMLU benchmarks find that model AND human outperforms model OR human||…we find that human participants who interact with an unreliable large-language-model dialog assistant through chat—a trivial baseline strategy for scalable oversight—substantially outperform both the model alone and their own unaided performance… large language models can productively assist humans with difficult tasks… present large language models can help humans achieve difficult tasks in settings that are relevant to scalable oversight. — Anthropic, Nov/2022.|
|10/Feb/2022||GPT-3 has intelligence||GPT-3 has its own form of fluid and crystalline intelligence. The crystalline part is all of the facts it has accumulated and the fluid part is its ability to make logical deductions from learning the relationships between things. – OpenAI, Feb/2022|
|8/Dec/2021||DeepMind Gopher on par with students for SAT reading questions||NYT reported “In December 2021, DeepMind announced that its L.L.M. Gopher scored results on the RACE-h benchmark — a data set with exam questions comparable to those in the reading sections of the SAT — that suggested its comprehension skills were equivalent to that of an average high school student.”
RACE-h as complex reading comprehension questions for high-school students:
Average human (Amazon Turk worker) = only 69.4%, ceiling 94.2% (link)
PaLM 540B = 54.6% (few-shot).
Gopher 280B = 71.6%
|2/Nov/2020||GPT-3 is Artificial General Intelligence.||In November 2020, Connor Leahy, co-founder of EleutherAI, re-creator of GPT-2, creator of GPT-J & GPT-NeoX-20B, CEO of Conjecture, said about OpenAI GPT-3: “I think GPT-3 is artificial general intelligence, AGI. I think GPT-3 is as intelligent as a human. And I think that it is probably more intelligent than a human in a restricted way… in many ways it is more purely intelligent than humans are. I think humans are approximating what GPT-3 is doing, not vice versa.”
— Connor Leahy (November 2020)
Binet assessment with Leta AI
An early version of the Binet (1905) was run with Leta AI in May 2021. It is very informal, only a small selection of questions were used, and it should be considered as a fun experiment only.
Dr Alan D. Thompson is an AI expert and consultant, advising Fortune 500s and governments on post-2020 large language models. His work on artificial intelligence has been featured at NYU, with Microsoft AI and Google AI teams, at the University of Oxford’s 2021 debate on AI Ethics, and in the Leta AI (GPT-3) experiments viewed more than 4.5 million times. A contributor to the fields of human intelligence and peak performance, he has held positions as chairman for Mensa International, consultant to GE and Warner Bros, and memberships with the IEEE and IET. Technical highlights.
