A trio of Chinese researchers recently subjected a few well-known AI entities to a test and revealed a clear winner- Google Assistant.

In a test designed to evaluate an AI’s IQ Google’s Virtual Assistant scored 47.28, leaving its fiercest rival, Apple’s Siri far behind as it could only score 23.9. Microsoft’s Bing and Baidu fared significantly better than Siri, scoring 31.98 and 32.92 respectively.

While Google’s formidable search pedigree must have helped Google Assistant take the crown of the most intelligent  AI, its IQ score is less than that of an average 6-year old child which indicates the massive amount of progress  still left to be done.
