A Measure of Intelligence - Why is it that certain people within our society are intellectually gifted while others are not. It would seem that since we as humans are of the same species, we would have a very comparable intelligence level, and yet IQ test scores for 99 percent of the population range clear from “barely functioning” fifty-five to “Einstein” 145 (based on the Wechsler IQ test). Perhaps our perception is a little skewed. Maybe everyone is more similar intellectually than limited IQ tests can discern. Think about someone who you consider to be “under par” or even average on a scale of one to smart....   [tags: Intelligence]

The Intelligence Cycle - Introduction The Intelligence Cycle is an [effective], but outdated model. Essentially, it attempts to visualise intelligence as a process, and not merely a product. As such, by attempting a simple outline of a complex procedure, the cycle will be prone to misrepresenting dynamic changes; operational realities and either over, or under value particular parts of the process. However, it’s core strengths lie in it’s simplicity: shifting through the alphabet soup that is the Intelligence Community and making sense of the entire process is daunting: the Intelligence Cycle attempts to define its movement....   [tags: Intelligence]

Analysis of the Elements of the Intelligence Cycle - Minor Assignment • Analyse the elements of the ‘Intelligence Cycle’. What are its core strengths and weaknesses. Before I begin to analyse the elements of the Intelligence Cycle, I must begin with the definition of ‘Intelligence’. Throughout my research, it became apparent that the acceptance for an accurate definition of ‘Intelligence’ is still an issue to date. One reason could be because experts tend to view ‘intelligence’ through their own specialty, and would be fair to say that this could possibly be because officers within the intelligence community do not have strong bridges connecting them to each other or to policy makers, which would therefore enhance communication and sharing practices of raw findings and improve the processes of collection and analysis of information that it is to be turned into intelligence and disseminated back to the policy makers....   [tags: Intelligence] 2250 words

Multiple Intelligences - Multiple Intelligences In Howard Gardner’s Frames of Mind, he proposes that there are seven main areas in which all people have special skills; he calls them intelligences. His research at Harvard University was in response to the work that Alfred Binet had done in France around 1900. Binet’s work led to the formation of an intelligence test; we are all familiar with the “intelligence quotient,” or “IQ,” the way that intelligence is measured on his test. This type of IQ test was used as the basis of another one with which most of us are familiar: the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), which is taken my most college-bound high school students....   [tags: Intelligence IQ Smart Intelligent Essays] 2306 words

What is Intelligence? - The concept of intelligence is not generally considered to be controversial. However, it is an idea that can be very tricky to define. Different psychologists have come up with several different theories to answer the question "What is intelligence?", and, though they overlap, there is no universally accepted definition. Additionally, because it is difficult to quantitatively measure intelligence, the connotation of the word “intelligence” must be taken into account in the definition. A possible definition of intelligence is "the ability to excel in a certain area that involves rational thought." Because excellence is subjective, it is important to note that this definition requires that a comparison be used....   [tags: Sociology]

Defining Intelligence - Intelligence is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as being the capacity to acquire and apply knowledge. When knowledge is spoken of, it is generally used in terms of education. The extent of education a person has achieved is then what most often determines how much knowledge one has accumulated.

After all, even a person who has never gone to school a day in their life is capable of acquiring knowledge and applying it to some area of their life....   [tags: Education, definition]

Artificial Intelligence - Of all the technological developments of the modern age, none is as complex as artificial intelligence. The idea that a non-human, manufactured entity could advance to a point of emulating human behavior is enough to make people shiver.

Emotional Intelligence - In our everyday lives, we are constantly interacting with other individuals. These interactions have an effect on our emotions. We have to learn how to identify and deal with these emotions because they have a direct effect on how we deal with issues at work. Individuals can work their way through this process by becoming aware of the importance of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is sometimes referred to as EI or EQ. In their article, Colfax, Rivera & Perez (2010) stated that “Regardless though of how it is referred to, emotional intelligence (EQ) is concerned with understanding oneself and others, relating to people, and adapting to and coping with the immediate surroundings to be more successful in dealing with environmental demands” (pg 90)....   [tags: Psychology, Business]

Incorporated amid these aspects of intelligence are abilities to intermingle with the natural world across sensory methods and decision making abilities in unpredictable situations without human interference. Standard areas of exploration in AI consist of computer vision, game playing, learning, natural language understanding and synthesis, as well as problem solving and robotics (Noreen Herzfeld, 2003)....   [tags: Technology]

Artificial Intelligence - Artificial Intelligence (AI) will seamlessly integrate virtual and physical worlds. To ensure the success of AI three premises have to be actualized: functionalism, hardware capacity to mimic human thought, and the software to convert the gains in hardware advances (McGinnis 1256). The possibilities of AI extend from the synergistic union of the human brain with ambient intelligent environments, to neurocomputation ushering in an entirely new intelligence era. The proper supervision of Artificial Intelligence will guide the positive advancement of technology; additionally, the advantages of AI will range from improved quality of life to the facilitation of national security on and off the battlefield....   [tags: Technology ]

The IQ Debate - Intelligence can be defined in many different ways. This concept has been the focus of numerous studies and investigations by psychologists and other scientific experts. Intelligence can be the mental ability to reason, plan ahead, understand a wide range of complex issues and learn from past experiences (Gottfredson, 1997). Intelligence is the “resultant of the process of acquiring, storing in memory, retrieving, combining, comparing, and using in new contexts information and conceptual skills” (Humphreys, 1979) Intelligence is commonly measured through the use of a number of scales and quantitative measures, like the Intelligence Quotient (IQ), developed by Alfred Binet in early 20th century to identify which French children needed more attention from their educators....   [tags: Intelligence]

Artificial Intelligence - Artificial Intelligence (AI) is often depicted by science fiction authors and scientists as potentially equal—or superior—to human intelligence. Yet this dream may remain elusive until machines attain the basic human virtue of common sense, which the pioneering AI scientist Marvin Minsky defines as "an immense society of hard-earned practical ideas." (cited in Kurzweil, 2000, p. 91). Clearly, true AI, once it exists, would have an extraordinary impact on human society; denial of its possibilities could eventually shatter humanity's complacent belief in its guiding role as the planet's most intelligent form of life....   [tags: Technology] 2217 words

What is the Turing Test, and Why is it so Difficult to Pass? - One of the most difficult challenges in developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) is to create a machine that “thinks” as intelligently as humans do. However, devising a definition for the word “think” itself is quite a task. This is because it is yet unclear as to what comprises a human being’s thoughts, and what is the driving force behind his/her intelligence. Is it a manifestation of the immortal soul or is it just a complex network of nerves comprising the nervous system. To create an intelligent machine or a computer, it is necessary to grant it with thinking capabilities that are at par with humans....   [tags: Intelligence]
