STUDENT is an early artificial intelligence program that solves algebra word problems. It is written in Lisp by Daniel G Bobrow as his PhD thesis in 1964 (Bobrow 1964). It was designed to read and solve the kind of word problems found in high school algebra books.[1] The program is often cited as an early accomplishment of AI in natural language processing.
