The test known as the 20 QA bAbi Tasks hosted by Facebook Al Research (FAIR) assesses the ability of the artificial intelligence based programs to perform text understanding and reasoning.
Todate no organization has been able to solve all the 20 tasks with one hundred percent accuracy. However, using a unique approach, DataVal has successfully completed all 20 tasks with cent percent accuracy. The approach focuses on the human way of understanding Language.
