Comparing Humans and AI Agents
Comparing humans and machines is one important source of information about both machine and human strengths and limitations. Most of these comparisons and competitions are performed in rather specific tasks such as calculus, speech recognition, translation, games, etc. The information conveyed by these experiments is limited, since it portrays that machines are much better than humans at some domains and worse at others. In fact, CAPTCHAs exploit this fact. However, there have only been a few proposals of general intelligence tests in the last two decades, and, to our knowledge, just a couple of implementations and evaluations. In this paper, we implement one of the most recent test proposals, devise an interface for humans and use it to compare the intelligence of humans and Q-learning, a popular reinforcement learning algorithm. The results are highly informative in many ways, raising many questions on the use of a (universal) distribution of environments, on the role of measuring k...
