Computers beat humans in Stanford University reading test

Last week set an important milestone in the development of natural language processing. Alibaba's and Microsoft's deep neural network models managed to beat rival humans in a Stanford University reading and comprehension test.

This sets a good start for AI development in 2018, and while worries arise about the disruptive nature of this technology in certain fields, we are excited to find its true benefits when used together with human creativity.
