16 best artificial intelligence games & AI gaming - Dataconomy


Do you love artificial intelligence games? Artificial intelligence (AI) has played an increasingly important and productive role in the gaming industry since IBM's computer program, Deep Blue, defeated Garry Kasparov in a 1997 chess match. AI is used to enhance game assets, behaviors, and settings in various ways. According to some experts, the most effective AI applications in gaming are those that aren't obvious. Every year, AI games come in a variety of forms. Games will utilize AI differently for each kind. It's more than likely that artificial intelligence is responsible for the replies and actions of non-playable characters. Because these characters must exhibit human-like competence, it is essential there. AI was previously used to foretell your next best move. AI enhances your game's visuals and solves gameplay issues (and for) you in this age of gaming. AI games, on the other hand, are not reliant upon AI. AI technologies improved significantly as a result of research for game development.

This week in The History of AI at – Deep Blue versus Garry Kasparov


This week in The History of AI at – IBM "Deep Blue" machine defeats Garry Kasparov, the then-reigning World Chess Champion, at chess, in a highly-publicised match on 11 May, 1997. This date was the conclusion of 2 matches, one starting the year before, 1996. The face-off began on February 10, 1996, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kasparov actually won this match 4-2. A year later in New York City, they would actually rematch, where Deep Blue defeated Kasparov 3.5-2.5.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in construction - AEC Magazine


Q: Senthil, it's always great to meet a new face in AEC software. Can you tell us about your previous work and what you do at Slate? A: I've been working on advanced data technology in global software companies for over two decades now. I've helped pioneer multiple technological endeavours during that time, including AI, Blockchain, dge, cloud computing, metaverse, IoT, swarm robotics, system autonomy, and Big Data computing in industries spanning autonomous vehicles, fintech, smart buildings and cities, geospatial engineering, insurance, health care, and medicine. I've also helped develop the emerging AI Industry standards, such as the EU Artificial Intelligence Act, and also work in numerous industry think tanks and advisory boards of well-known academia and startups. Recently, my pioneering AI work was cited in the wall street journal and was recognised by the World Economic Forum.

The Guardian view on bridging human and machine learning: it's all in the game


Last week an artificial intelligence – called NooK – beat eight world champion players at bridge. That algorithms can outwit humans might not seem newsworthy. IBM's Deep Blue beat world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. In 2016, Google's AlphaGo defeated a Go grandmaster. A year later the AI Libratus saw off four poker stars.

Artificial intelligence beats eight world champions at bridge

The Guardian

An artificial intelligence has beaten eight world champions at bridge, a game in which human supremacy has resisted the march of the machines until now. The victory represents a new milestone for AI because in bridge players work with incomplete information and must react to the behaviour of several other players – a scenario far closer to human decision-making. In contrast, chess and Go – in both of which AIs have already beaten human champions – a player has a single opponent at a time and both are in possession of all the information. "What we've seen represents a fundamentally important advance in the state of artificial intelligence systems," said Stephen Muggleton, a professor of machine learning at Imperial College London. French startup NukkAI announced the news of its AI's victory on Friday, at the end of a two-day tournament in Paris.

AI is 'Better Than' Humans and That is Ok


Remember in 2017, Elon Musk said that artificial intelligence would replace humanity in the next five years? While working on artificial intelligence for Tesla cars, he concluded that society had approached the moment when artificial intelligence could become significantly smarter than people. "People should not underestimate the power of the computer,'' Musk said. "This is pride and an obvious mistake." He must know what he's talking about, being one of the early investors of DeepMind, a Google subsidiary that developed an AI that could beat humans at Go and chess. AI is really good at many "human" tasks -- diagnosing diseases, translating languages, and serving customers.

Brainstorming AI


Far from the stuff of fantasy, artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of our lives. Even the most tech-adverse among us use AI, perhaps unknowingly, when we type a query into Google or plug in GPS. Those who embrace technology, on the other hand, actively look for ways AI can improve their work and personal lives. Though it seems AI is a new phenomenon, the technology has been around since 1956. While AI's popularity has waxed and waned, it gained legitimacy in the 1990s and 2000s when a chess computer program beat the grand chess master Garry Kasparov and speech recognition software was installed on Windows.

What the history of AI tells us about its future

MIT Technology Review

That isn't what happened, of course. Indeed, when we look back now, 25 years later, we can see that Deep Blue's victory wasn't so much a triumph of AI but a kind of death knell. It was a high-water mark for old-school computer intelligence, the laborious handcrafting of endless lines of code, which would soon be eclipsed by a rival form of AI: the neural net--in particular, the technique known as "deep learning." For all the weight it threw around, Deep Blue was the lumbering dinosaur about to be killed by an asteroid; neural nets were the little mammals that would survive and transform the planet. Yet even today, deep into a world chock-full of everyday AI, computer scientists are still arguing whether machines will ever truly "think."

Reimagining Chess with AlphaZero

Communications of the ACM

Modern chess is the culmination of centuries of experience, as well as an evolutionary sequence of rule adjustments from its inception in the 6th century to the modern rules we know today.17 While classical chess still captivates the minds of millions of players worldwide, the game is anything but static. Many variants have been proposed and played over the years by enthusiasts and theorists.8,20 They continue the evolutionary cycle by altering the board, piece placement, or the rules--offering players "something subtle, sparkling, or amusing which cannot be done in ordinary chess."1 Technological progress is the new driver of the evolutionary cycle. Chess engines increase in strength, and players have access to millions of computer games and volumes of opening theory.

Why games may not be the best benchmark for AI


Did you miss a session from the Future of Work Summit? In 2019, San Francisco-based AI research lab OpenAI held a tournament to tout the prowess of OpenAI Five, a system designed to play the multiplayer battle arena game Dota 2. OpenAI Five defeated a team of professional players -- twice. And when made publicly available, OpenAI Five managed to win against 99.4% of people who played against it online. OpenAI has invested heavily in games for research, developing libraries like CoinRun and Neural MMO, a simulator that plops AI in the middle of an RPG-like world. But that approach is changing.
