MIT Technology Review reports on how AlphaGo defeated the top human Go player in the world. Now A.I. researchers are looking at even more complex games, like StarCraft. It is interesting to note that StarCraft AI currently has over 60 bots listed.
It will be interesting to see if new bots take advantage of input speed — faster than humanly possible — or match human speed and test their creative and planning skills instead. If we’re talking about a military bot in a simulated environment, perhaps the bot won’t limit input speed or any other factor. After all, in the real world a bot will take advantage of whatever it can — like in Terminator. But if we’re talking about strictly a test of intelligence, it would seem to me that is more important to limit input speed to human capable speed, thus testing pure intellect — creativity, craftiness, planning, team building, etc.
