  • Blizzard and DeepMind have created an open test environment within the StarCraft II game for artificial intelligence researchers to use worldwide.
  • Google’s DeepMind has announced that it will be making use of game development studio Blizzard’s StarCraft II game as a testing platform for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning research, opening the environment worldwide.
  • StarCraft II is closer to a real-world environment than any other game it has used for testing so far, DeepMind said, as it is played in real-time.

  • By augmenting an AI’s capabilities with the power of learning from memory, it’ll likely be able to complete far more complex tasks on its own.
  • DeepMind, an artificial intelligence firm that was acquired by Google in 2014 and is now under the Alphabet umbrella, has developed a computer than can refer to its own memory to learn facts and use that knowledge to answer questions.
  • It’s the networks that helped DeepMind’s AlphaGo AI defeat world champions at the complex game of Go .
