Abstract:The main factor of intelligence is defined as the ability to comprehend, formalising this ability with the help of new constructs based on descriptional complexity. The result is a comprehension test, or C-test, which is exclusively defined in computational terms. Due to its absolute and non-anthropomorphic character, it is equally applicable to both humans and non-humans. Moreover, it correlates with classical psychometric tests, thus establishing the first firm connection between information theoretical notions and traditional IQ tests. The Turing Test is compared with the C-test and the combination of the two is questioned. In consequence, the idea of using the Turing Test as a practical test of intelligence should be surpassed, and substituted by computational and factorial tests of different cognitive abilities, a much more useful approach for artificial intelligence progress and for many other intriguing questions that present themselves beyond the Turing Test.
