Trending in Education – Episode 66 – Torobo-kun, Artificial Intelligence, & College Admissions

Dan, Mike, and Brandon explore the story of Torobo-kun, a robot designed to take tests to gain entry into Todai University in Japan. The squad digs into the rich narrative of a robot designed to pass a test that very nearly reached its goal, before pivoting to industrial use. Beyond Torobo’s story (and related screenplay ideas), the team dives into the research of Noriko Arai and how we’re using AI research to gain insight into the complex relationship between human cognition and machine learning.
