‘Can a Robot Pass the University of Tokyo Entrance Exam?’

Todai” aka Tokyo University is considered Japan’s top university and it is well known for its onerous entrance exams. The exams for getting into Todai are so torturous that passing them generally kills the spirit of the “successful” students and turns them into drones and automatons. It is no wonder that Japan is trying to find a way to streamline the entire process by creating “Artificial Brains” that can pass the Todai entrance exam.

Fujitsu to Participate in Artificial Brain Project, “Can a Robot Pass the University of Tokyo Entrance Exam?”
Fujitsu press release | September 10, 2012
Fujitsu Laboratories and Japan's National Institute of Informatics (NII) today announced that, starting this fiscal year, Fujitsu Laboratories will participate in NII’s artificial brain project, known as “Can a Robot Pass the University of Tokyo (Todai) Entrance Exam?”, otherwise known as “Todai Robot”…
…was started in 2011 with the aim of once again bringing an integrated approach to research into artificial intelligence (AI), a field that had grown fragmented since 1980, as a way of opening new horizons. The goal of the project is to enable an artificial brain to score high marks on the test administered by the National Center for University Entrance Examinations by 2016, and to cross the threshold required for admission to Todai by 2021.

← By way of explanation, the Japanese word on the top is Kiken, which means danger and the text at the bottom attribute the warning to the Parents and Teachers Association of the Mori grade school in Osaka.

However, there is no translation of what the lurking three brown dangers that are depicted in the poster could be.

Can You Speak Japanese?

Friend of the 3Yen, Mulboyne*, just tweeted an iTunes link to, “Kiyoshi Ryujin’s intriguingly-titled new song, ‘Can You Speak Japanese?’”

If you dare to risk your sanity, you can listen to a long sample of Can You Speak Japanese? on iTunes, or here’s a more-the-enough sample that’s blissfully shorter: MP3, 44-seconds long, low-fi, 640KB
