The Chinese Higher Education Entrance Exam, or ‘Gaokao’, took place this week, and while it is an event of key importance for Chinese students, this year's effort is marked by the participation of two AIs. "One is called AI-MATHS, [developed] by the 863 Program of China Ministry of Science and Technology. Another one is developed by a K12 online education company, Xueba Jun, called Aidam."
