Super Smash Bros Pros Beat by Self-Taught AI

Recommended Posts

NVIDIA reports a story about an AI bot developed by students at MIT and New York University that beat professional gamers during the Genesis 4 Super Smash Bros tournament last month. The bot taught itself how to play in two weeks.

The AI was trained with CUDA, Tesla K20/TITAN X GPUs and the TensorFlow deep learning framework. The creator, Vlad Firoiu used reinforcement learning by having the bot play itself repeatedly, learning which techniques worked the best. Firoiu coauthored the paper with William F. Whitney.
