Robot Prepared for China's University Entrance Exam

May 11, 2016

A Chinese company has announced plans to have a robot take the country's university entrance exams next year, China Daily reported. The plan is for the robot to win admission to some universities in 2017 and to be prepared to win admission to the country's very top universities by 2020. The challenge for the robot is expected to be the liberal arts portion of the exam, officials said. A robot in Japan is already earning passing marks on that country's university entrance exam but is still pushing for high enough marks to get into Tokyo University.
