AI Breakthrough or the Mismeasure of Machine? "If a computer program took the SAT verbal analogy test and scored as well as the average college bound human, it would raise some serious questions about the nature and measurement of intelligence.

Guess what?

Artificial intelligence with human-level performance on SAT verbal analogy questions has been achieved (warning: PDF) using corpus-based machine learning of relational similarity. Peter D. Turney's Interactive Information Group, Institute for Information Technology of the National Research Council Canada, achieved this milestone.

The timing of this achievement is highly ironic since this is the first year that the College Board has given the SAT's without the verbal analogy questions."
