Default Re: How Do You Ascertain Intelligence?

So for example a computer may be perceived as being smarter than a human - because even though it has an extraordinarily low intellect - it has a much superior processing speed. If it had the same processing speed as a human it would definitely look much dumber.

So I would say that intelligence as people see it is actually perceived intelligence - which has multiple parameters.
I have a slow processor and low ram. My hard disk drive is also full of bad sectors. I don't feel very intelligent, when I look at it this way.
