DeepMind bot AlphaStar has scored a convincing 10/10 victory against pro human players in a special series of StarCraft II matches. Plucky 26 year-old Polish gamer Grzegorz “MaNa” Komincz however salvaged a bit of human pride, snatching a surprise win yesterday in a live rematch at the DeepMind and Blizzard Entertainment Starcraft II Demonstration live stream event hosted in London.
A Google engineer has used AI to enable humans to throw virtual punches and kicks at the tough guys in popular fighting video game Mortal Kombat3. Instead of jabbing at a controller, the user fights via a web camera, with the AI rendering their air strikes to an onscreen clone in real time. You punch and kick, and Kano goes down.
