In China, the robot passed the math exam at 3+. As job machine proposed to solve tasks on the exam. The robot managed to score 105 points. As much as possible to get 150.
The examiners put the subject "state" assessment. Design professionals from Chengdu got the name AI-MATHS. It "sewed" speech recognition and "artificial intelligence". The developers explained why the result shown by the robot was not impressive. It turned out that the thing in an improper understanding of the machine separate words in the tasks. This led to the fact that the apparatus began to give random answers to the question.
