A Tic Tac Toe AI with Neural Networks and Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

This article is my entry for CodeProject's AI competition "Image Classification Challenge"[ ]. My goal was to teach a neural network to play a game of tic tac toe, starting from only knowing the rules. Tic tac toe is a solved game. A perfect strategy[ ] exists so a neural network is a bit overkill and will not perform as well as existing programs and humans can. Described from a high level: when the AI needs to make a move, it iterates over all possible moves, generates the board after making a given move, and uses the neural network to see how good the position is after performing that move.


Tic Tac Toe - Creating Unbeatable AI – Towards Data Science

#artificialintelligence

In today's article, I am going to show you how to create an unbeatable AI agent that plays the classic Tic Tac Toe game. You will learn the concept of the Minimax algorithm that is widely and successfully used across the fields like Artificial Intelligence, Economics, Game Theory, Statistics or even Philosophy. Before we go into the AI part, let's make sure that we understand the game. I recommend you to play the game yourself, feel free to check out my iOS Tic Tac Toe app.


When Bots Teach Themselves to Cheat

#artificialintelligence

Once upon a time, a bot deep in a game of tic-tac-toe figured out that making improbable moves caused its bot opponent to crash. Moments when experimental bots go rogue--some would call it cheating--are not typically celebrated in scientific papers or press releases. Most AI researchers strive to avoid them, but a select few document and study these bugs in the hopes of revealing the roots of algorithmic impishness. "We don't want to wait until these things start to appear in the real world," says Victoria Krakovna, a research scientist at Alphabet's DeepMind unit. Krakovna is the keeper of a crowdsourced list of AI bugs.


This Rehab Robot Will Challenge You to Tic-Tac-Toe

IEEE Spectrum Robotics

Physical rehabilitation is not something that anyone does for fun. You do it grudgingly, after an illness or accident, to try and slowly drag your body back toward what it was able to do before. I've been there, and it sucks. I wasn't there for nearly as long as I should have been, however: rehab was hard and boring, so I didn't properly finish it. Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, led by Shelly Levy-Tzedek, have been experimenting with ways of making rehab a bit more engaging with the addition of a friendly robot arm.


Announcing TensorFlow 1.5

#artificialintelligence

Is there an SDK to use TensorFlow Lite in Java/Kotlin? Also, is it possible to do other things in TensorFlow Lite, other than image related things? For example, teach it to win tick-tack-toe by itself? You'd think the leaders in machine learning would be able to prevent comment spam by now, especially on their own blog....

Menace: the Machine Educable Noughts And Crosses Engine - Chalkdust

#artificialintelligence

The use of machine learning to teach computers to play board games has had a lot of interest lately. Big companies such as Facebook and Google have both made recent breakthroughs in teaching AI the complex board game, Go. However, people have been using machine learning to teach computers board games since the mid-twentieth century. In the early 1960s Donald Michie, a British computer scientist who helped break the German Tunny code during the Second World War, came up with Menace (the Machine Educable Noughts And Crosses Engine). Menace uses 304 matchboxes all filled with coloured beads in order to learn to play noughts and crosses.


Keras Tutorial: Recognizing Tic-Tac-Toe Winners with Neural Networks

#artificialintelligence

"Tic-Tac-Toe Endgame" was the very first dataset I used to build a neural network some years ago. I didn't really know what I was doing at the time, and so things didn't go so well. As I have been spending a lot of time with Keras recently, I thought I would take another stab at this dataset in order to demonstrate building a simple neural network with Keras. The dataset, available here, is a collection of 958 possible tac-tac-toe end-of-game board configurations, with 9 variables representing the 9 squares of a tic-tac-toe board, and a tenth class variable which designates if the described board configuration is a winning (positive) or not (negative) ending configuration for player X. In short, does a particular collection of Xs and Os on a board mean a win for X? Incidentally, there are 255,168 possible ways of playing a game of tic-tac-toe.


Tic Tac Toe War Games: The Intelligent Minimax Algorithm

#artificialintelligence

In a previous post, I shared how to build a randomised Tic Tac Toe simulation. The computer plays against itself playing at random positions. In this post, I will share how to teach the computer to play the game strategically. I love the 1983 classic movie War Games. In this film, a computer plays Tic Tac Toe against itself to learn that it cannot win the game to prevent a nuclear war.


Tic Tac Toe Game with a touch screen and an Arduino Uno - Domotique 34

#artificialintelligence

By admin In this Arduino project video educ8s.tv is going to build an Arduino Game, a Tic Tac Toe game with a touchscreen. In this video we are going to build an Arduino Tic Tac Toe game. As you can see, we are using a touch screen and we are playing against the computer. A simple game like Tic Tac Toe is is a great introduction to game programming and Artificial Intelligence. Even though we won't be using any Artificial Intelligence Algorithms in this game, we will understand why Artificial Intelligence Algorithms are required in more complex games.
