A Billion People, a Thousand Years

My 1st-ever public sharing of the “Symbiotic Genius” vision and proposed research initiative was at the Genovasi SUGIC 2015 competition.  I am envisioning that Symbiotic Genius can improve the lives of a Billion People for a Thousand Years annually.

Cognitive Skills

different components of fluid intelligence peak at different ages, some as late as age 40.

… each cognitive skill they were testing peaked at a different age. For example, raw speed in processing information appears to peak around age 18 or 19, then immediately starts to decline. Meanwhile, short-term memory continues to improve until around age 25, when it levels off and then begins to drop around age 35.

For the ability to evaluate other people’s emotional states, the peak occurred much later, in the 40s or 50s.

rystallized intelligence peaks later in life, as previously believed, but the researchers also found something unexpected: While data from the Weschler IQ tests suggested that vocabulary peaks in the late 40s, the new data showed a later peak, in the late 60s or early 70s.
