SoftBank Forcasts AI Will be Smarter than Human Brain in 30 Years–With IQS of 10,000

(ValueWalk)  Masayoshi Son, chief executive of SoftBank Group Corp., recently forecast that within 30 years, artificial intelligence will be smarter than the human brain. To put this in perspective, while a genius’s IQ is roughly 200 — superintelligent robots will have IQs of 10,000. And in 30 years, these robots will actually outnumber humans.
SoftBank bought ARM Holdings, a computer-chip design firm, for $32 billion last year, and it’s now focused on increasing its research and development funding. SoftBank also started a $100 billion technology-investment fund focused on artificial intelligence, smart robots and the Internet of Things last year. The SoftBank Vision Fund is larger than the $65 billion in combined investments from the venture-capital world.
