Next-Gen: Complex AI Will Lead To 'Realistic Behaviour' & 'Simulated Emotions'

NowGamer: Prettier graphics are expected on the PS4 and Xbox 720, but what about AI? Tomb Raider's creative director has some ambitious ideas... (Next-Gen, PS4, Tomb Raider)

What the hell does graphics have to do with AI?
Septic  +   907d ago
Nothing. Did you you actually just read half of the first sentence?
Lisica  +   907d ago
Kind of.

But again, I doubt that processing power was the problem with AI so far.
konnerbllb  +   906d ago

Of course processing power and ram limits AI. They have to divide processing power and memory between multiple functions that make up a game. Graphics, phsyics, sound, map size, NPC count, AI.


To think otherwise is ridiculous.

I gotta agree with Liscica, power isn't the issue, devs have just not known how to code for it.

AI isn't a switch nor are sprites going to magically do more once you add power. Every action has to be coded to have a reaction, power was never an issue, just a non-understanding/lazyness to code for it.

Naughty Dog have come up with a solution to this which is no doubt a work in progress.

It is up to the dev to tackle the issue, but hopefully in the near future devs will be provided with AI kits akin to SpeedTree.

"But, this complex AI for next-gen games requires the new consoles to have the processing power to react and work with the speed of the human brain, and there’s a very real opportunity that’s exactly what they could do."

The PS4 CPUGPU or APU will take care of that.

Hmm Ubisoft said the same thing about the AI in the PS4 version of watchdogs.

""We can spend more time in the brain of each AI with a more powerful machine, saying, 'OK, how will I react to what just happened there? Where will I run to? Will I call the cops?', or stuff like that.

"Fundamentally the core, innovative part of Watch Dogs is the same on every platform. But on PS4 we're able to push every level a lot further."


It pretty much confirms that the PS4 (and PC for sure) version of this game will contain superior gameplay in comparison to the Wii U, PS3 and XBOX360 version due to superior AI and Physics.

And people say that hardware doesnt improve gameplay LOL

Its up to the devs if they want to push those certain areas to the limit even with the ps3 u see how great the AI is in killzone & now u see how naughty dog has pushed it even further with the last of us. It will only IMPROVE with the ps4 & nextbox & of course pc but its the 1st party studios who will push it to its limits.

I'm always down for better AI :)

Random thought, I've had for around 15 years.

If an AI is ever created that's capable of taking over the world, it'll be a game developers creation.

with what naughty dog's doing on ps3, i can't wait to see what they do with the ps4

SPorts games could benefit from this.

Better AI - don't bet on it.

The hardware has been there for years (high end PC hardware), but the AI is still attrocious.

Graphics isnt what needs to be improved, it's the AI and thats up to the developers.

Don't hold your breath with it happening though, otherwise we would have already seen it on PC. The PC counterpart of multiplatform games, the AI is pretty much the same, the only difference is the graphics.

I know that developers focus more on consoles, but I still don't see them improving AI on the PS4/720.

I don't see gameplay evolving either.

To be honest, I expect more of the same gameplay but just with better graphics.

I just hope that developers don't focus too much on fancy graphics with the PS4/720 and forget about quality gameplay (hello Crysis 3)

I bet my house that AI wont see a massive improvement cause AI always suck in video games.
