Chinese internet giant Alibaba develops AI that outperforms humans in reading test

Alibaba has developed an artificial intelligence model that scored better than humans in a Stanford University reading and comprehension test.

“This is the first time that a machine has outperformed humans on such a test,” Alibaba said in a statement Monday.

Alibaba’s deep neural network model provided exact answers to more than 100,000 questions comprising a quiz that’s considered one of the world’s most authoritative machine-reading gauges. The model developed by Alibaba’s Institute of Data Science of Technologies scored 82.44, edging past the 82.304 that rival humans achieved, according to a report published in Bloomberg.
