Artificial Intelligence Is Learning How To Develop Games


Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology are developing an AI that can recreate a game engine simply by watching gameplay. This technology, as detailed in a press release, is being created in an effort to aid video game developers to "speed up game development and experiment with different styles of play." "Our AI creates the predictive model without ever accessing the game's code, and makes significantly more accurate future event predictions than those of convolutional neural networks," lead researcher Matthew Guzdial said in the release. The researchers found "the AI playing with the cloned engine proved indistinguishable compared to an AI playing the original game engine."
