Yup.  I spent years developing the capability to score endgames
at the point where humans typically leave them.  Getting within
a few points of correct 95% of the time is achievable.  The other
5% you will either make whopper mistakes or never terminate.

This is now pretty old, but I don't know of any more recent or better
results. http://www.andromeda.com/people/ddyer/go/scoring-games.html
