AI-MATHS Steven Zuber Schweiz Trikot , an artificial intelligence system developed by Chengdu Zhunxing Yunxue Technology Co, completed a math paper of the national college entrance exam, or gaokao, in 10 minutes and scored 100 points out of 150, media reported.
It was not the first time the AI-MATHS robot sat the math examination. In February, it scored 93 points out of 150 in a similar test Ricardo Rodriguez Schweiz Trikot , lower than the student average of 106.
AI-MATHS solves problems by employing a logical reasoning platform, according to Lin Hui, the robot's founder.
As with many robots, its understanding of the Chinese language was where it fell short. It did not perform well in some mathematical word tests because it "cannot understand the meaning of the questions," according to experts. For example, it can't understand words like "investment" and "wealth management."
Zhunxing Yunxue Technology has been researching and developing AI-MATHS since 2013.
An earlier AI product developed by the company was an intelligence evaluating system Marwin Hitz Schweiz Trikot , which could record students' question-answering process, said Lin, who also works with the big data center of the Suzhou research institution under Tsinghua University.
The intelligence evaluating system not only helped students pinpoint their shortcomings, but also saved teachers' time evaluating papers, Lin said.
A pilot program is seeing the AI-MATHS robot used for math education in middle schools in Suzhou and Chengdu, among other cities. In addition to education Valon Behrami Schweiz Trikot , the use of the robot could be expanded to other industries, including finance, medical treatment and transport, Lin said.
SHANGHAI, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Five former workers at a Shanghai day care center were arrested on the charge of child abuse Wednesday, local prosecutors said.
The suspects have been in detention since the case was reported to the police on Nov. 8.
The suspects were caught on camera in a Ctrip day care center Granit Xhaka Schweiz Trikot , appearing to abuse young children, Changning district people's procuratorate said
Leading travel agency Ctrip established the center, run by a third-party organization, in 2016 to help employees with childcare for children under three years old, the minimum age for kindergartens.
The district people's procuratorate has dispatched prosecutors specializing in child criminal cases to assist the police in the investigation, promising to safeguard the legal rights of the minors involved.
Video footage showing carers abusing children went viral online Haris Seferovic Schweiz Trikot , leading to an intense public outcry. One clip showed a female employee throwing a girl's schoolbag on the floor and pushing her violently, causing her to fall and hit her head on the corner of a table.
In another video, a child cried after being forced to eat something, which his parents later claimed was wasabi.
In early 2016, Shanghai magazine "Modern Family" signed a contract with Ctrip to run the day care center. It later subcontracted the center to a third-party organization, but controlled financial affairs of the center.
The Women's Federation of Shanghai Remo Freuler Schweiz Trikot , to which the magazine is affiliated, apologized to the public for a "lack of supervision and management." The president of the magazine was fired.
Ctrip has sought new management for the center and said it would allow employees to see surveillance video of classrooms on their mobile phones in the future.
COPENHAGEN, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Novozymes, the world's largest producer of industrial enzymes, reported on Friday better-than-expected financial results for the first half of 2017.
"Overall, the first half was good Breel Embolo Schweiz Trikot , and better than expected," said Peder Holk Nielsen, president and CEO of Novozymes, in a statement.
"We had growth in the large segments and delivered 3 percent organic sales growth with a strong EBIT margin, excluding one-offs," Nielsen said.

In the first half, the company's household care enzymes grew by 3 percent to stand at 2.397 billion kroner, contributing 33 percent of total sales.
Novozymes maintained its full-year expectations for organic growth with sales and net profit to grow between 2 and 5 percent, while EBIT margin projected at around 28 percent.
However, the outlook for sales and EBIT growth in Danish kroner have been adjusted to 1 to 4 percent as against a previous forecast of 3 to 6 percent Manuel Akanji Schweiz Trikot , due to "a weaker currency environment." (1 U.S. dollar = 6.33 Danish kroner)

As their children grow up, every set of parents has a different idea as to what should be the main focus of their upbringing and how they should spend their free time, especially when it comes to extra curricular activities. Some parents place a huge emphasis on academics and want their children doing extra reading or working with a tutor. Other parents are heavily into sports and want their children to focus on sports. Some parents simply want their children to be children and don?t push them in any particular direction at all.
