Microsoft is using machine reading to create a 'literate machine'


If you asked most people, they'd probably say that computers and other gadgets are pretty good at communicating information to us, whether it's by providing directions to an important business meeting or finding the best recipe for gluten-free apple pie. And yet, computers still don't communicate with us nearly as intuitively as we communicate with each other. If you type a query into a search engine, for example, chances are you'll get a list of websites to click on. But if you ask a person a question, she'll respond with an answer, or perhaps ask another question to get more information before answering. Microsoft is hoping to improve how well computers can communicate information to us.

Artificial Intelligence Beats Humans in Major Reading Test


The code has been copied to your clipboard. Machines equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) have performed better than human beings in a high-level test of reading comprehension. Two natural language processing tools received higher test scores than humans in recent exams. One of the tools is a product of the American software maker Microsoft. The other was created by the Chinese online seller Alibaba Group.

No, machines can't read better than humans


Computers are built to process data, but there's a particular form of information so rich and dense in meaning that it's beyond the full comprehension of even the most advanced AI. It's also one that you and I process intuitively and deal in every day: language.
