Episode Description

This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, Tom and Mitch turn the cogs of intelligence. They each reveal their scores on an IQ test and explain why it is or isn’t the best way to explore human intelligence. From animals to AI the world shows many signs of what could be intelligence, but is it? And how does intelligence arise, is it through the classic nature or nurture argument or is something larger at play?
