Recently we have been working nearly every day with ChatGPT, DALL-E, Midjourney and Bard, and this has led us to question whether these GenerativeAI models are intelligent.
The first problem you come across when trying to answer this question, is that no one agrees on what intelligence is. From that perspective, the question then becomes unanswerable. However, this is a bit of a cop out. A better yard stick of intelligence may be, “I can’t define intelligence, but I know what it looks like when I see it.” Using that criteria, we think that most people would agree that Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI) has been achieved. Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), also known as Weak AI, refers to AI systems designed to perform a specific task or a limited range of tasks. Unlike Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) or Strong AI, ANI lacks the ability to apply its intelligence broadly across a wide range of contexts.
