After cracking an unsolvable mathematics problem last year, AI is back to tackle geometry.

Developed by Google DeepMind, a new algorithm, AlphaGeometry, can crush problems from past International Mathematical Olympiads—a top-level competition for high schoolers—and matches the performance of previous gold medalists.

When challenged with 30 difficult geometry problems, the AI successfully solved 25 within the standard allotted time, beating previous state-of-the-art algorithms by 15 answers.
