The system, called GeoS, gets about 49 percent of questions right, which extrapolates to about a 500, out of a possible 800, on the SAT’s math test. That’s pretty solid amongst its robot peers and was the average human score in 2015. You can test your own math skills head-to-head against GeoS online here. The demo underscores how even basic concepts required for the test become more challenging when they’re not being interpreted by…
