We’ve spent all this time talking about artificial intelligence and we know what ‘artificial’ means, but what is ‘intelligence’? Who better to answer that than the International Supervisory Psychologist of Mensa, Kristóf Kovács? He is a senior research fellow at Eötvös Loránd University researching cognitive psychology and psychometrics.

Most people are content to define 'intelligence' as 'that which an IQ score measures', - but what if it's your job to write the IQ test? To validate those tests? To know what they mean? How can we know what artificial intelligence is until we understand the real thing? Find out more in this episode, when we also talk about what IQ tests are measuring and how to interpret them, what Mensa does, and Kristóf's research into the g-factor of intelligence.

All this and our usual look at today's AI headlines and a description of my upcoming continuing studies course at the University of Victoria on the same theme as this podcast, which is open to online enrollment from all over the world; register at
