‘Spaun’ the artificial brain can pass basic IQ test
Scientists in Canada have claimed to have developed world’s most sophisticated, large-scale model simulation of human brain named ‘Spaun’ which can pass the basic elements of IQ test. SPAUN is Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network.
- Runs on supercomputer
- Digital eye for visual input
- Robotic arm to draw responses
- 2.5 million simulated neurons facilitating it to do 8 different tasks like copy drawing, counting, question answering, fluid reasoning etc.
- It has some limitations which are simulated like human brain
