Chinese AI becomes first robot to pass medical exam
How intelligent are the artificial intelligence (AI) of today? Between self-learning AIs, smart assistants like Alexa, Siri and Cortana, and a fear of Terminator-esque computers mounting an insurgency against humans have put us in a quandary. China has been investing more and more on developing AI and looks to surpass the United States in the matter.
Recently, Xiaoyi, an AI-controlled robot developed by iFlytek Co Ltd, took the national medical licensing exam, and passed. The 600-mark exam has a pass score of 360, but Xiaoyi racked up 456 after blitzing through dozens of medical textbooks, two million medical records, and 400,000 articles to develop the acumen to qualify as a medical professional. Currently, plans stand to use Xiaoyi as a diagnostician. Developers are confident the AI has the ability to learn, reason and decide on its own. However, it will not be operating on its own right away. Earlier in July, China announced plans to build a $152 billion AI industry by 2030.
