AI Scores as High as the Average High Schooler on the Math Section of the SAT

AI may be rapidly approaching human-level intelligence. Chinese researchers recently built an AI that was shown to score slightly higher than the average human on the verbal portion of an IQ test, and now, a new study shows that AI can achieve the same score on the math portion of the SAT as the average high schooler. Researchers at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Seattle uses a mathematical algorithm in order to understand and solve math problems. The algorithm creates a formal model of the problem that is able to combine text understanding and diagram interpretation, which the researchers claim “boosts the accuracy of dependency and semantic parsing of the question text.”Using this algorithm, the program was able to correctly solve 61% of the geometry practice problems and 49% of the official problems on the…
