Exciting and yet.....kind of scary too.

RazzerRedux1035d ago

lol....because I've watched too many movies about AI taking over the world.

First, I never knew single player games went away. Second, playing a game exclusively with AI...isn't that already the definition of a single player game?

Fun fact: did you know Terminator and The Matrix happens in the same universe but different time periods?

Well there's still that prediction by Ray Kurzweil who thinks we're gonna have human level AI by 2029, i think he meant we'd actually be able to communicate as if it's a real person. Some think that's too early but.. Who knows

Now that we're having machines design machines the pace will pick up. 2029 might be a little early but it won't be that much longer. Probably just a few years after that.

I graduated high school in 1992. The internet was not mainstream. Most people did not have computers in their house. Phones were still something you "hung up". Cartridges were plugged into consoles.
Fast forward 10 years. Internet is huge. Computers in every household. Cell phones in everyone's hand. Discs used to play games.
It's not going to take long where Ai is easy to communicate with. The biggest advance will be talking to an Ai assistant in our car or house as if we're talking to a person.

We all know which consoles that loves to make single player games

I think Gabe meant to say - 'Thanks to Sony and Nintendo for not abandoning SP for the potential riches of GAAS and MT's' - yh, that's definitely what he meant to say.

Once Quantum computing becomes a full fledged reality, that's when AI will be able to get itself out of the stone age era. We are only at the very early stages of tinkering with quantum computing which still relies on traditional hardware. Classic computers uses 1 and 0. Quantum computers changes the fundamental rules entirely with something else I can't understand(bunch of scientific words used to describe it)

I feel like AI is much scarier than we can imagine right now once it reaches a certain point of singularity. We're going to inevitable open up pandora's box

I agree, Gabe. Now, where´s HL3?

Atticus_finch1035d ago

I think he just gave us a hint.

FullDiveDerail1035d ago

If you played Alyx it pushes the story forward. Its by far the best HL game and one of the best games I have ever played.

Kabaneri1035d ago

Co-op is the best of both worlds.

Spurg1035d ago

Can someone link to an article that explains A.I tech in gaming?

Ron_Danger1035d ago

That sounds exactly like something AI would say...
