Google-owned artificial intelligence start-up DeepMind has revealed that its deep learning software is now able to outperform humans in 31 different video games. The algorithm, which uses reinforcement learning to master the games, has been described as the “first significant rung of the ladder” towards proving such a system can work, and a significant step towards use in real-world applications. Speaking at the Re.Work Deep Learning Summit in London on Thursday (24 September), DeepMind research scientist Koray Kavukcuoglu described how the same algorithm could be used to master dozens of different games. Without having the games’ rules programmed into its software, the AI was able to improve by analysing the pixels on the screen and learning which patterns produce the optimum score. The reinforcement learning algorithm was used to master…
