Nvidia AI Programs It’s Own Pac Man Game

Nvidia is known for their video cards and GPUs, but the company has also been experimenting with Artificial Intelligence (AI). They’ve developerd an algorithm that can recreate games by simply watching hours of games being played. The researchers had the AI observe Pac-Man game play and it was able to successfully recreate the game. The resulting game is playable by humans, but it is not a perfect recreation. Apparently the imagery is a little blurry and the ghosts don’t have the same personalities as they do in the original. Still… its looks and feels like a Pac-Man game. Pretty impressive for an AI programmer.
