What Online Poker Players Can Teach Us About AI


Poker is considered a good challenge for AI, as it is seen as combination of mathematical/strategic play, and human intuition, especially about the strategies of others. I would consider the game a cross between the two extremes of technical vs. human skill: chess and rock-paper-scissors. In the game of chess, the technically superior player will almost always win, an amateur would lose literally 100% of their games to the top chess playing AI. In rock-paper-scissors, if the top AI plays the perfect strategy, of each option 1/3rd of the time, it will be unbeatable, but also by definition be incapable of beating anyone. To see why let's analyse how it plays against the Bart Simpson strategy: If your opponent always plays rock, you will play rock 1/3rd of the time, paper 1/3rd and scissors 1/3rd, meaning you will tie 1/3rd, win 1/3rd, and lose 1/3rd.
