As someone who likes difficult single player games, I am used to letting my butt be handed to me by artificial intelligence, usually not even real. I also happen to have a full-size human brain. Although it is not without problems, its ability to learn and change is usually the reason why I finally overcome the challenges of the game.
Therefore, when I learned that some human brain cells in the petri dish have performed much better than AI in video games, this worried me and the future of my games. New Scientist reported that a team in Australia has been cultivating these little brain puddles, and now people have learned to play table tennis for a considerable amount of time.
Cortex Lab It is a company dedicated to integrating biological neurons with more traditional silicon-based computing hardware. They grow brain cells on microelectronic arrays, so they can stimulate the cells. These hybrid chips are said to be able to self-learn and reorganize to solve problems, such as blocking a sneaky ball that wants to enter your target.
According to Cortical Labs, AI usually takes 90 minutes to learn Pong, and this “DishBrain” (yes, that’s its name) manages to complete it in five minutes. Although researchers did notice that once both are properly trained, a good artificial intelligence will still absolutely destroy cells.
The team achieved this by using electrical signals to communicate the position of the ball in the game to DishBrain. Then the neuron can move the paddle to collide with the ball, which is very crazy. However, I am pretty sure that my Pong calculations are faster and without the help of a complete team of scientists, just to say.
Brett Kagan, chief scientific officer of Cortical Labs, told new scientists “We think it’s fair to call them robotic brains” and went on to explain that when the brain moves oars in Pong, they are sure they are oars. “We often call them oars.” Live in the Matrix.” He explained: “When they participate in the competition, they believe that they are oars.”
AI is already crazy. They can turn text into realistic images, make Grand Theft Auto, or encode anything, regardless of quality. Todd Howard, the owner of Bethesda, hopes to use better artificial intelligence in the game, and the United Nations has even called for the regulation of potentially dangerous artificial intelligence. I am very happy to see how terrible miracles DishBrains can create in the process of moving towards terrible perception.
