Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) researchers have developed a machine learning system that taught itself the basics of video game design by watching videos of people playing games such as Super Mario, Kirby, and Mega Man.
The researchers say the artificial intelligence (AI) system can learn about the interactions between characters and objects. It takes the patterns it has identified in individual games and repurposes them into new games.
The system currently produces very abstract block games, but the researchers aim to add more recognizable character designs and backdrops.
Said Georgia Tech's Matthew Guzdial, "People often say they want a game that's a bit like one thing and a bit like another. Wouldn't it be great if you could show the AI Fortnite and Minecraft and it spat out something new you could play?"
