The most advanced AI in the world still can’t pass an 8th grade science test

There’s no denying artificial intelligence has come a long way in recent years, and movies like Ex Machina hint at where it could be just a few years down the line. But we’re not there yet. A new study indicates even the most advanced AI systems on the planet couldn’t actually pass an 8th-grade science test, meaning the good ol’ human brain still has a little mileage left in the tank. The results come from a recent contest held by the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, led by University of Washington computer science professor Oren Etzioni and funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The institute hosted a contest that invited just under 800 teams of AI researchers to build a system designed to pass an 8th-grade-level science test. The best performers successfully…
