About iQ

iQ's research and consulting focuses on designing and implementing intelligent systems.

AI visual ML

Founded in 1993, iQ Company has consistently led the way in designing and implementing intelligent systems.


In 1995, one of our earliest products pioneered the collection of human intelligence via online surveys.


In 2006, we launched PredictWallStreet, a venture-backed company, to demonstrate that systems leveraging the collective intelligence of millions of retail investors could outperform elite Wall Street professionals. This was proven in 2018 when PredictWallStreet powered a top-performing hedge fund.


By early 2023, we integrated our collective intelligence approach with cutting-edge AI innovations to develop safe AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) and SI (Superintelligence) systems.


As of 2024, our patent-pending designs for AGI and SI are the safest and most powerful available. We are actively seeking partners to implement and scale these technologies.
