CHINESE ROBOT PASSES CHINA’S MEDICAL LICENSING EXAM
A Chinese medical robot named Xiaoyi achieved a passing score of 456 on China’s medical licensing exam in early November. A passing score is 360 out of 600. But 456 is an impressive result considering the robot scored 100 in its first practice run.
Chinese IT company iFlyTek and Tsinghua University in Beijing collaborated on the development of Xiaoyi, which means “little doctor.” It was developed to test if artificial intelligence (AI) can be effective in identifying links between words, sentences, paragraphs and other natural language features to develop a capacity to reason.
