Interesting read on how AI stacks up against our science education standards via WIRED.
In 2012, IBM Watson went to medical school. So said The New York Times, announcing that the tech giant’s artificially intelligent question-and-answer machine had begun a “stint as a medical student” at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.
This was just a metaphor. Clinicians were helping IBM train Watson for use in medical research. But as metaphors go, it wasn’t a very good one. Three years later, our artificially intelligent machines can’t even pass an eighth-grade science test, much less go to medical school.
