Human IQ vs Algorithmic IQ vs Deymen's IQ

Is there any scientific evidence that IQ decreases with age? My own IQ seemed higher when I was younger. Recently, I've been trying to understand Reinforcement Learning, specifically in the context of how our dog, Deymen, learns. It's not easy to model this in the context of Reinforcement Learning. I sometimes jokingly wonder if Deymen is smarter than me!
Here's a high level comparison between Human IQ and Algorithmic IQ (next time I will add 3rd Category: Deymen’s IQ):
Human IQ vs. Algorithmic IQ Improvements:
  • Human IQ is traditionally measured through cognitive abilities assessments. But does Human IQ deteriorate with age, while Algorithmic IQ improves?
  • Algorithmic IQ refers to AI capabilities in tasks like pattern recognition. Can it get better over time, unlike human intelligence?
Ethical Concerns of Improving Algorithmic IQ: What are the ethical implications as Algorithmic IQ continues to advance? Does its improvement pose any moral dilemmas or societal challenges?
Comparison Overview:
1. Definition and Measurement:
  • Human IQ is evaluated using standardized tests.
  • Algorithmic IQ measures AI system capabilities.
2. Flexibility and Adaptability:
  • Human intelligence understands context and complexities.
  • Algorithmic intelligence excels in specific tasks but lacks human adaptability.
3. Learning and Evolution:
  • Humans learn from diverse experiences.
  • Algorithms learn from data, limited to their programming.
4. Ethical and Social Considerations:
  • Human decision-making is influenced by ethical and emotional factors.
  • Algorithmic decisions are data-driven, potentially lacking ethical reasoning.
5. Application and Scope:
  • Human intelligence is holistic, fostering creativity and innovation.
  • Algorithmic intelligence is highly effective in automation and data analysis.
6. F uture Implications:
  • The convergence of human and algorithmic intelligence might enhance human decision-making.
  • A balanced approach could lead to significant advancements across various fields.
Understanding these differences and potential synergies is crucial as AI becomes more integrated into our society.
