If you think you or your friends are good at Yu-Gi-Oh!, just wait until you start playing the machines.

At this year’s Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association meeting, Konami revealed it had developed AI-enabled tech that can identify the 9,000-plus Yu-Gi-Oh! playing cards.

According to Nikkei, the first system Konami created could only identify half the cards correctly after learning them over the course of a twenty-day period. Konami realised that this system wouldn’t be usable, so it a technique called “translucent composite learning.” CG versions of the cards were created with two variations merged into semi-transparent compositions.

The result was a new AI system that was able to learn all 9,000-plus Yu-Gi-Oh! cards in a four-to-five day span with a hundred per cent accuracy rate.

Now that AI has learned the cards, it’s only a matter of time before the machines can play them.

    What exactly is the definition of AI? Isn't this just clever algorithms? It can't learn anything else right?

      the capacity of a computer to perform operations analogous to learning and decision making in humans, as by an expert system, a program for CAD or CAM, or a program for the perception and recognition of shapes in computer vision systems. Abbreviation: AI, A.I.

        It's just a program to me. It's not learning new tasks, doing any logical thinking or perceiving it's environment.
