The Topic of artificial intelligence in recent years is becoming increasingly important. And not only for large corporations producing cars or involved in science, but also among manufacturers of video games like the French company . For anybody not a secret that video games use simplistic algorithms that control certain game characters, virtual road traffic, and also regulate many other processes. It seems that the leadership of Ubisoft wants to bring this technology to a new qualitative level.
Ubisoft has established a separate company from the main unit called La Forge, whose staff will focus on research in the field of artificial intelligence. Moreover, these studies will be aimed not only at improving artificial intelligence in video games, but also to use it in science and technology. As employees of the new units were not only proven specialists to Ubisoft, but also specifically hired to do this, scientists, for many years engaged in research in the field of AI.
As an example of the influence of game AI in reality Ubisoft has created a small demonstration on the basis of their own games . It staff La Forge has recreated an exact copy of the San Francisco Bay, then launched it dense road traffic and pedestrians, which, of course, entrusted to artificial intelligence. Experts say that such simulations are suitable for virtual learning AI to control an unmanned vehicle in an urban environment. The car does not have to ride on real streets, as the simulation accurately reproduces the real conditions.
In the development of La Forge are also several other interesting projects. For example, an AI that will be able to give realistic movements of robots and mechanical prostheses. Another unusual application of artificial intelligence will be a system that tracks the improper conduct of players in massively multiplayer online games. Something like this for quite some time trying to implement several major gaming companies. So far, unfortunately, to no avail. But who knows, maybe that Ubisoft will make it for the first time.
Virtual reality is not only a great way to come back and be directly within them, but also the opportunity to have fun, mocking the characters of the second plan, or to experiment with the physics of the virtual world.
We have that, Microsoft has launched an initiative Mixed Reality Initiative, which attempted to create a common standard compatible with the operating system Windows 10, VR and AR devices.
Anything we've seen in the gaming industry: management with movement, jumps, gestures, touching the touch screens, but as a controller to control the game used your own eyebrows? A graduate of Washington University Nathan, Gitter decided that it's a pretty fun idea.
