The sandbox world of Minecraft allows you build practically anything. Soon though, it won't be used simply to create spatial objects, but artificial intelligence systems. At least, that's Microsoft's plan, taking an project aiming to teach AI to make its own decisions and launching it as an open-source testbed. Currently, Microsoft's internal study sees a small team of computer scientists trying to teach a virtual player how to navigate Mojang's blocky world. The AI has only the same available resources a flesh and blood player would have access to, and must learn from its mistakes.

Microsoft provides Indian RTOs with AI software to take driving license tests

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft has announced that its Harnessing AutoMobiles for Safety (HAMS)AI project is being used at the Regional Transport Office, Dehradun, Uttarakhand to automate driver's license testing. HAMS uses smartphone based technology to automate a users driver's license testing. Microsoft states that its HAMS project enables the driver's license testing to be an objective and transparent process, which helps in testing drivers better and granting them licenses. The company states that license testing is a pressing problem in India. Citing a survey by SaveLIFE Foundation, it said that 59 per cent of the respondents did not give a test to obtain a driving license.
