Microsoft files patent for AI-driven cheat detection

According to Microsoft, artificial intelligence would be trained to track interactions between games and gaming platforms such as Xbox Live. These “interactions” would include notifications of achievements, game scores reported to the platform, and/or a player rank achieved on the platform based upon game activities. If something abnormal is spotted, the data would be analyzed for possible cheating behaviors.

That's actually a really smart use of AI. Hmm, I wonder if the next gen consoles will have some kind of system-wide AI.

This is terrible.

The AI will first begin to detect cheaters and then it will grow, learn, become sentient and realize that all humans are cheaters. This is when it will decide that all humans must be dealt with.

Thus the rise of the robots and the end of human civilization.

Why M$? Why?

Should be more

Why Google, why?. Why Apple, Why?. Why M$, Why?. Why $ony... oh hang on they'll need to buy their AI in, though they won't be far behind.

The truth is, AI is becoming part of online interaction now. So if you don't like it, I suggest getting offline

So...The ai will actually end up being smarter than it's creators then?

Don't worry about it. Ms will just pay off the ai so it can retire to Tijuana.

Yeah that wont lead to problems..

Cheat detection in its current form has problems. I can’t see it getting any worse with an AI

Is cheating that big of problem on Xbox?
I mean, the normal situations can not be fixed because they have to do more with advantages like a xim connector with a modded keyboard and mouse giving a player anit flinch and shooting control with aim assist etc. or modded controller.
Lag switching can happen I guess..
But by the description, it sounds like it is looking at achievements and gamer scores. Things that can effect rewards etc more than player v player situations.
