Kids thoughts on Evaluating Human Level Systems


I sat down my 9, 7 and 5 year old and asked them how they would determine if a “Robot” was as smart as them and these are their responses:

9 Year old Make Friends and Have Emotions Have Enemies Be Mean to People who are Mean to them Have Likes and Dislikes Have things they are good and things they are bad at Tell Lies

7 Year old Wear Clothes Talk like a human Do math puzzles Have legs Act their Age Be able to do things the wrong way, or make mistakes

5 Year old Eat Food Go Pee Smell Things Make people’s wishes come true Do the same work as me and when the teacher checks the work they did better Make Animals come out of a computer Tell you they are smarter
