Socratic is an iOS app that many of us could have used in school, as it not only solves math problems, but just about every other subject as well, complete with detailed explanations. Its artificial intelligence combines cutting-edge computer vision technologies, which read questions from images, with machine learning classifiers built using millions of sample homework questions, to accurately predict which concepts will help you solve your question.

“The app is actually designed to answer any kind of school question – science, history, etc. – but the math thing is the slickest part. For other kinds of questions, Socratic kind of does a bit of Googling, and in my experience can typically find similar word problems on the wide internet, or from its own database of answers. On about half the middle school science problems I tried, the app was able to identify the topic at question and show me additional resources about the concepts involved, but for others it was no more powerful than a simple web search,” reports The Verge.
