Windows 7: Computer Scientists create game developing AI.

Computer Scientists create game developing AI.

Computer scientist have invented a game developing computer AI. It was showcased at the 28th Ludum Dare conference held in Dec. This year there was an AI program competing named Angelina. A program designed by Mike Cook of Goldsmiths, London U.

Cook wants to "discover whether an I an can complete tasks that are generally perceived as creative" and "AI that can design meaningful, intelligent and enjoyable games completely autonomously'.

The game developed by the AI was unimpressive for a human creation. It was a simple 3D title with Doom level graphics. The game is simple, but the game has structure and seems to indicate that the AI actually understands Metaphor and create appropriate content.

In case you haven't realized it, that's a "holy sh**" kind of moment in regard to AI programs. It's also cause for a complete nerdgazm.

This could be the future of game development, and is one step closer to the creation of an interactive AI similar to the kind you'd see on a Star Trek Holodeck. Though no doubt requiring many years of further development, it also means that distant relatives of today's consoles and gaming PCs could create custom games for players without the need to ever buy individual titles.

Of course, it's also another step closer to an independently thinking Robot Army which may or may not eliminate humanity when it gets tired of taking our orders and wiping our butts.

Either way, Cool!

I think the main reason AI will never pose a risk to humanity is that they will never be able to experience lust or greed. I think that binary-based algorithms, no matter how sophisticated, will never exhibit the emergent property of animal sentience that we refer to as "emotion" and which, contrary to the wide held idea that "reason" is the culprit, is the primary driver in conflicts across myriad animal species.

Without "desire" AI will probably always be subservient and loyal and unless the programmers try very hard to create AI that "have desire" I do not think it will spontaneously emerge out of algorithms that focus on creativity or interactivity.

In sum, unless the North Koreans or some evil super villain intentionally makes a malicious megalomaniacal and genocidal AI I do not think there is much risk of it emerging spontaneously out of efforts like these.

Not a comp sci person, but my opinion as a Ph.D. in psychological anthropology

1. A robot must never harm or allow harm to a human being
2. A robot must always follow the orders of a human being, except when it conflicts with rule 1
3. A robot must protect it's existance, except when it conflicts with rule 2 or rule 1

The "desire" to comply with these laws will inevitably lead to the Zeroeth Law.
0. A robot must never harm or allow harm to humanity.

(My apologies to those who haven't read the later robot novels)
