Dr. Noriko Arai is a Japanese researcher in mathematical logic and artificial intelligence and a professor in the information and society research division of the National Institute of Informatics.  Her project pitting an AI against the University of Tokyo entrance examination got her thinking about how well young students are able to read. She started researching a new test to assess reading ability and draw attention to those junior high and high school students who cannot read well enough to understand their textbooks. Scott chats Dr Arai about AI, the future, and her experiences as a woman researcher in Japan.

This episode of Hanselminutes is done in warm collaboration with our friends at the ACM ByteCast and is coproduced and published with the ACM.
