Submission + - Can a Japanese AI Get Into University? (ieee.org)

the_newsbeagle writes: Japanese researchers are trying to develop an artificial intelligence program that can pass the standardized test required of all college-bound high school students. Interestingly, the AI is showing good progress in the history portion of the exam, because it's fairly adept at looking up answers in a vast textual database. But the so-called Todai Robot is having trouble with math, "because the questions are presented as word problems, which the Todai Robot must translate into equations that it can solve," as well as with physics, which "presumes that the robot understands the rules of the universe." If the AI does succeed in mastering the general university exam, researchers will next tackle the notoriously difficult University of Tokyo entrance exam, which will require the bot to write essays.
