On IQ tests

In AI there’s this concept of dimensionality reduction, which reduces a lot of dimensions to three or less dimensions (however you lose a lot of information through that). IQ tests are basically a very, very, very glorified version of dimensionality reduction.

DNA stores zetabytes of information (one zetabyte is already 1000 to the power of 7, a sextillion bytes). OK, 99%is just telling that you are a human, but there’s still very much left and, as you can probably see, it’s still way, way, way too much to be reduced to a single number.
