Google's DeepMind AI project has already dominated competitive Go, now we're about to see how it fares in Starcraft 2.
After teasing the progress made with DeepMind during a recent BlizzCon panel, Blizzard are now set to show off what Google's AI is capable of in Starcraft 2.
What do you do when your fancy AI has proven it's capable of learning and conquering the champions of some of the most difficult board games in history? You move to StarCraft, obviously.
The last time that we heard from Blizzard about this project, DeepMind had started developing amusing strategies like worker rushes that had 50% success rate against the Insane difficulty Starcraft AI.
Data was fed to the AI again that included thousands of replays of human play which lead to more standard tactics around building resources and spending them efficiently.
That was in November. What DeepMind is capable of now will be revealed during the stream.
