Artificial intelligence Nvidia GameGAN recreated a copy of the cult game Pac-Man, originally without knowing its rules and logic
It took four days
Game Pac-Man is one of the most famous in the world. Even those people who are in my life played any video games, have probably heard something about Pac-Man, or learn it for the visual component.
Today marks exactly 40 years since the release of Pac-Man on arcade machines. And to this date Nvidia has dated a very unusual and impressive display.
The above video is a demonstration of broken machine Pac-Man. This is a demonstration of the results of the work Nvidia GameGAN latest models of artificial intelligence, created by Nvidia Research. In this case, the point is that the AI GameGAN created the game copy of the game Pac-Man, which you can see in the video, with absolutely no knowledge about the logic and rules of the game and without the game engine. The AI simply has trained 50 000 game sessions, arcade, understand its logic, and was able to recreate your own version — without the game engine and all the other attributes of the development process the usual games.
In fact, Nvidia GameGAN is just the first neural network model that simulates the engines of computer games using a generative algorithm-adversarial network (GAN). Nvidia notes that such opportunities can be used by developers to automatically create models of new game levels and AI researchers to simplify the development of system simulators for the training of Autonomous machines. However, in the first case, the developers are unlikely in the near future do EN masse will take on GAN in one form or another.
By the way, the neural network Nvidia GameGAN to create your own copy of the game took only four days, whereas the development of the original Pac-Man took 17 months.
