The Games AI Play

Activity: Talk or presentationPublic lecture


In 2014, Google brought a UK start-up for a reported $500million. Roughly two years later, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed by Google Deepmind defeated a world champion Go player. This is only the latest result in the history of AI and games, where both academic and industry researchers have sunk large amounts of time, effort and money into making computers win games against humans. In this talk, we will discuss why we pursue such goals and how this could significantly change the world in the near future.
