I spent quite a bit of time philosophizing about what intelligence actually (as in function-wise is) and I came to the conclusion that it consists of two (or so) properties
- Number of operations per unit time or "processing speed" (Jordan Peterson mentions this in one of his videos, he then also mentions that it's not all that it is but that it's a huge portion of it)
- The ability to pay sustained attention or simply attention (Jordan Peterson also mentioned this in the discussion with Richard Haier, briefly states that he went through the literature of attention and that it's basically the same as I.Q. A neat "reference" for this is also the Visual Motion Intelligence test: http://www.quantumday.com/2013/05/visual-motion-intelligence-test-to.html
(You could maybe decouple the sustainability of attention and information cancelling from attention in sub-modules but that is just more philosophizing)
My question is the following, has there ever been a formal (or formal-ish) model that combined these two properties or something similar been conceived?
