Artificial brain passes basic IQ test.
An artificial brain created by neuroscientists at the University of Waterloo in Canada can pass a basic IQ test according to researchers. The Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network — SPAUN — contains 2.5 million simulated neurons. It can complete eight different tasks, and an attached arm can even write. Not only does it simulate the human brain’s and cognitive abilities, but it even simulates the brain’s limits, as it has difficulty remembering more than a few numbers.
