Smart Software Learns to Run And Play Football

The idea of a dystopia in which intelligent machines learn human tasks and resolve to put an end to our existence, so common in literature and science fiction cinema, seems to be only a matter of time.

More proof of this comes from DeepLoco, a computer program created at the University of British Columbia in the United States, which has learned a number of activities by itself.

The intelligent software uses machine learning and was created just to develop skills on its own. In this way, it discovered how to walk and run in the open or between obstacles, just as it learned to play football – or at least carries it with the feet. The video below shows some of the capabilities of DeepLoco.

In the future, DeepLoco can make a very impressive contribution to the development of games in the future. If the evolving characters of Mordor Shadows are already attractive, imagine characters not controlled by the player with the ability to learn new skills as the game unfolds?
