  Elon Musk: Artificial intelligence may spark World War III The serial CEO is already fighting the science fiction battles of tomorrow, and he remains more concerned about killer robots than anything else.While many nervous eyes around the world are watching rogue nation North Korea and its latest nuclear test, billionaire worry-wart Elon Musk warns that an international artificial intelligence race is more likely to cause World War III than a 20th century-style arms race.

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." During their most recent experiments, the AI watched two minutes of Super Mario Bros. gameplay, and then built its own version of the game by studying and frames and predicting future events.

"To get their AI agent to create an accurate predictive model that could account for all the physics of a 2D platform-style game, the team trained the AI on a single 'speedrunner' video, where a player heads straight for the goal," Georgia Institute's communications officer Joshua Preston explained. This school of thought, he added, made the most difficult scenario possible for training the AI.

Now, new research suggests that AI could potentially be used to identify people who have taken steps to conceal their identities by wearing hats, sunglasses, or scarves over their faces.

Not all games require a human touch — think Tetris vs. Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, he said — but it affects the work ANGELINA can do. "People will find it hard, no matter how much they like ANGELINA, to connect with its output in the same way they might connect with Anna Anthropy's Dsy4ia," Cook said.

By allowing the AI to study the actual frames of the game, researchers found it was able to predict frames of the game much closer to the actual frames of Super Mario Bros. than other tests the team had run with different methods. This simplifies the process, necessitating their AI only need to watch a video of a game in action to begin replicating a game and learning its engine.

"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. “A single video won’t produce a perfect clone of the game engine, but by training the AI on just a few additional videos you get something that’s pretty close.”

A glossary of basic artificial intelligence terms and concepts

  A glossary of basic artificial intelligence terms and concepts The ever-expanding field of Artificial Intelligence stands upon the precipice of a mainstream breakthrough.&nbsp;Naysayers will point out AI isn’t new; researchers were diving into the idea of autonomous computing back in the 1950s. Today’s developers aren’t so different either, as what they’re doing is essentially what experts in the field have been working on for decades.

Artificial Intelligence is a science to develop a system or software to mimic human to respond and behave in a circumstance. Related Questions. Could you relate machine learning and artificial intelligence ? I want to develop a game . How do I start and go advanced with programming

Artificial Intelligence can compose songs, paint pictures, help in cancer therapy, drive cars and play games . It will take even longer before AI learns how to interpret the business value of each feature and advise you what to develop first.

Once the team had their model, there was only one test left: how did it play? A second AI system was then implemented to test the recreated level to ensure the player wouldn't fall through a level – kind of like a QA tester, but instead a highly intricate AI system.

The researchers found "the AI playing with the cloned engine proved indistinguishable compared to an AI playing the original game engine."

"To our knowledge this represents the first AI technique to learn a game engine and simulate a game world with gameplay footage," associate professor of Interactive Computing and co-investigator on the project Mark Riedl said.

The researchers go on to stress that, as of right now, their AI systems work best when the majority of the action happens on screen. Games where action happens away from the player's direct frame of sight might prove difficult for the system.

  7 tech innovations that are drastically changing the way people learn When we discuss technology innovations, we usually focus on the ways that new tech is making our lives easier.&nbsp;Both inside and outside the classroom, the following tech innovations are having a drastic impact on the way people learn, helping to change education for the better.

This tutorial is prepared for the students at beginner level who aspire to learn Artificial Intelligence . AI is accomplished by studying how human brain thinks, and how humans learn , decide, and work while trying to solve a problem, and then using the outcomes of this study as a basis of developing

The nascent technology does raise the question of what sort of impact a more realized version of the AI could have on the game industry. Specifically, could it eliminate the need for certain jobs, like QA tester, in the game industry?

However, Georgia Tech's Riedl says developers don't need to fear their job security; this technology will be an aid in development, not a replacement. Riedl tells Glixel that this AI will help novice game developers create projects once out of their reach. Using this kind of AI would allow developers with no coding or design experience to show the AI how a game should work, which it would then replicate.

"Instead of putting people out of work, this will make it possible for people to create games that were otherwise unable to do so," Riedl said. "That makes it possible for more people to create – increasing the size of the pie instead of supplanting individuals. Second, professionals may be able to build games faster by having the system make an initial guess about the mechanics. Working more efficiently doesn’t necessarily put people out of work, but does allow them to make bigger and better games in the time available."

What about QA testers? Well, according to Riedl, they'll still be necessary thanks to one feature they have over AI systems necessary for playing games: the human touch.

"[Video games] are made to be enjoyed by humans," Riedl said. "Because of that you're always going to need humans to actually test the games. AI might help to test things we simply can't test currently but can be formalized mathematically, like game balance ... but one will need to use humans to see if other humans will enjoy the game for the foreseeable future."

Trump: 'No, Russia did not help me' .
President Donald Trump on Friday called the investigation into Russian meddling in 2016 "one of the great hoaxes," and said they didn't aid his victory."No, Russia did not help me, that I can tell you, OK?" Trump said.
