This chapter is a survey of a large number of informal definitions of “intelligence” that the authors have collected over the years. Naturally, compiling a complete list would be impossible as many definitions of intelligence are buried deep inside articles and books. Nevertheless, the 70 odd definitions presented here are, to the authors' knowledge, the largest and most well referenced collection there is. 

Topics from this paper

Tests of Machine Intelligence
TLDR
This paper provides a short survey of the many tests of machine intelligence that have been proposed and suggests alternatives to the Turing test and its many derivatives. Expand
Intelligence : Many definitions
Despite a long history of research and debate, there is still no standard definition of intelligence. This has lead some to believe that intelligence may be approximately described, but cannot beExpand
Toward a Formal Characterization of Pragmatic General Intelligence – ROUGH PRELIMINARY VERSION
”Intelligence” is a natural language, ”folk psychology” concept, with all the imprecision and contextuality that this entails. One cannot expect any compact, elegant formalism to capture all of itsExpand
Universal Intelligence: A Definition of Machine Intelligence
TLDR
A number of well known informal definitions of human intelligence are taken, and mathematically formalised to produce a general measure of intelligence for arbitrary machines that formally captures the concept of machine intelligence in the broadest reasonable sense. Expand
(Computational) Intelligence: What's in a Name?
  • J. Bezdek
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine
  • 2016
This article is about the terms intelligence, artificial intelligence (AI), and computational intelligence (CI). Topics addressed here include 1) the historical evolution of the terms AI and CI; 2)Expand
Defining Modes of Intelligence
TLDR
This chapter concerns itself first with trying to define the parameters of intelligence as humans have worked them out, from various points of view, and with how these insights can be applied to non-human intelligence. Expand
Towards General Evaluation of Intelligent Systems: Using Semantic Analysis to Improve Environments in the AIQ Test
TLDR
The analysis identified several classes of programs that are non-discriminative or contain pointless code adversely affecting the testing process, increasing the suitability of the Algorithmic Intelligence Quotient test as a general artificial intelligence evaluation method. Expand
Intelligence, a New Concept?
Humans, or at least the humans reading this book, pride themselves on their intelligence. Humans have by far the most advanced material culture and sophisticated, flexible communication system of anyExpand
Toward a Formal Characterization of Real-World General Intelligence
TLDR
Two new formal definitions of intelligence are presented, the ”pragmatic general intelligence” and ”efficient pragmatic general intelligence,” to capture a notion of general intelligence that more closely models that possessed by humans and practical AI systems. Expand
Universal Meta-Definition of Intelligence
TLDR
The paper presents the main provisions of the new approach and deduces the initial components of the Universal Formalism of Intelligence, which follows directly from the Universal Axiom and is represented by exclusively the highest Universe’s meta-concepts that can solve the said problem. Expand

A Native Intelligence Metric for Artificial Systems
TLDR
Using this definition of native intelligence, a chance elimination argument in the literature is employed to form a simple, but promising native intelligence metric. Expand
A Formal Measure of Machine Intelligence
TLDR
A number of well known informal definitions of human intelli-gence that have been given by experts are taken and formalised to produce a general measure of intelligence for arbitrary machines, which formally captures the concept of ma-chine intelligence in the broadest reasonable sense. Expand
On the Thresholds of Knowledge
TLDR
Each of these three hypotheses proposes a particular threshold to cross, which leads to a qualitative change in emergent intelligence, which determines a direction for future AI research. Expand
The Nature of Intelligence
Evaluating Intelligence Hand-wringing, browbeating , and finger-pointing have all followed the events of September 11, 2001, and the National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq's Continuing Programs forExpand

  • 2000
TLDR
Methods for evaluating the intelligence of intelligent systems by means of computational semiotics focus on architectural details of structures, organizations, processes and algorithms used in the construction of the intelligent system, evaluating the impact of using these elements in the overall intelligent behavior exhibited by the system. Expand
The Turing Ratio: Metrics For Open-ended Tasks
TLDR
It is argued that evolutionary computation is a key method for amplifying human intelligence, an assertion which future scientists can empirically decide through measuring Turing Ratios and considering task breadth, prior knowledge, and time series of the measures. Expand
Where's the AI?
TLDR
A program exhibiting AI as one that can change as a result of interactions with the user is described, which would have to process hundreds or thousands of examples as opposed to a handful. Expand
WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
This article for the layman answers basic questions about artificial intelligence. The opinions expressed here are not all consensus opinion among researchers in AI.
Mainstream science on intelligence: An editorial with 52 signatories, history, and bibliography
Since the publication of " The Bell Curve, " many commentators have offered opinions about human intelligence that misstate current scientific evidence. Some conclusions dismissed in the media asExpand
AI as Complex Information Processing
TLDR
In this article, a software architecture for intelligent agents is presented, which makes use of the fact that an agent is in a situation, so it only processes some of the information – the part that is relevant to that situation. Expand
