Computers can now probably pass the Turing test for artificial intelligence: they can convince a human that they are interacting with another human in conversation. But could thy pass the Allen test: pass an eighth grade science exam? Daniel Lemire discusses this possibility. But I took a slightly different take on the challenge when reading the post: do  people have to pass the eighth grade science test in order to be considered to have human-level intelligence? I also wonder about this conclusion: "All three winners expressed that it was clear that applying a deeper, semantic level of reasoning with scientific knowledge to the questions and answers would be the key to achieving scores of 80% and beyond."   Right now the best solutions are data-search and indexing. My challenge would be: could an  associative system pass an eighth grade science test? Here's more on the Allen test. Here's the Press Release.
