“Paul Allen said his decision to fund AI research lab was inspired by the question of how books and other knowledge might be encoded to become the basis for computer interactions.

… A new synthesis of artificial intelligence, weaving together powerful machine-learning tools with traditional logic-oriented software.

Researchers have focused on three projects — one in computer vision (in which computers learn to recognize images), one to build a reasoning system capable of taking standardized school tests, and a third to help scholars deal with fire hose of information inundating every scientific field.

In September, researchers celebrated first milestone — 60 percent correct answers in language portion of New York State’s fourth-grade science test.”
