Google: Starcraft is likely next target for Deep Mind




After beating the best human players go through Deep Minds AlphaGo is the next challenge of Google’s business likely StarCraft says Deep Minds founder Demis Hassabis in an interview.

He indicated in his interview with The Verge, however, that the AlphaGo program is a project within a much larger story that Google wants to solve the problem intelligence. AlphaGo has shown that the so-called perfect information game or game in which all information is available, was able to beat the best human players. Go with all information available to both players by looking at the board. Go is generally considered the most difficult artificial intelligence in that category.

A game like poker is a game where information is partly available, but with a piece of information is not known, also imperfect information game. Also there is in poker talk of more than two players in total, which also increases the difficulty.

Within the world of computer games is StarCraft likely next challenge for the team behind AlphaGo. Or so thinks Hassabis. The comment is backed by Google Senior Fellow Jeff Dean at Business Insider.

Yet players in Starcraft’s defeat is not an end in itself. “We are only interested in things that are within the research program. So the goal is not to let defeat Deep Mind people in games, how fun and exciting it is.”

In other words, Hassabis want to use games as long as they are useful as a test platform for testing ideas about algorithms and how far they scales. There used games is one of the ways to do that efficiently. Eventually the systems should be used for problems in the real world
