The story of robots applying artificial intelligence (AI) to complete university programs is not too strange in this nowaday.
Recently, in the US, an AI robot named BINA48 passed the Psychology exam of Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) and became the first robot in the world to complete a university program.
Mr. William Barry, Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of NDNU’s Center for Real Contextual Learning and Research, commented that BINA48’s achievements were “astonishing”.
BINA48 is a robot with only head and chest, can hear, see and dialogue with people around. The robot was developed by Hanson Robots Company, launched in 2010. BINA48 stands for “Breakthrough Intelligence via Neural Architecture”.
BINA48’s appearance is prototyped from Mrs. Bina Aspen – wife of businessman Martine Rothblatt – who is behind the technology of this robot.
Before being a student of the above course, BINA48 often appeared in many classes of Associate Professor Barry. During a class, this robot expressed interest in going to college and was supported by him.
Before that, China also owned the world’s first AI robot to pass the exam for a medical degree.
According to China Daily, this robot, named Xiaoyi, took part in China’s national medical licensing exam and passed with a score of 456/600, 96 points higher than the floor. This shows that China is particularly interested in the development and application of AI in the healthcare sector.
This robot, developed by China’s leading AI company iFlytek, is capable of capturing and analyzing information about patients.
This is part of China’s push to promote the application of artificial intelligence in many industries, including healthcare and consumer electronics. The China has also overtaken the US as the world leader in several areas of AI research.
iFlytek intends to turn Xiaoyi into an assistant to help doctors improve their work efficiency.
“We will officially launch Xiaoyi next March. Xiaoyi will not replace doctors, but promote the cooperation between people and machines to increase the efficiency of medical care,” Chairman Qingfeng Liu of iFlytek said.
iFlytek aims to use AI to improve cancer treatment and help train GP-general practitioner, a human resource that is in short supply in China.
“Rural areas of China have a severe shortage of general practitioners. We expect AI will help more people have access to quality medical resources,” added Mr. Qingfeng.
iFlytek is currently one of the leading companies in the AI field in China. Last month, the company said it would invest 1.02 billion yuan ($150 million) to support startups with core technology but lack business knowledge, or companies with commercial products. prominent commercial but not yet able to apply AI to their devices.
