Pacman recreated by AI
To mark the 40th anniversary of the day since PAC-MAN was first released in Japan, NVIDIA has announced a version of the game recreated entirely by an AI. NVIDIA Research created a new AI model called GameGAN that was trained on 50,000 episodes of the game. According to NVIDIA, from this it was able to “generate a fully functional version of PAC-MAN — without an underlying game engine. That means that even without understanding a game’s fundamental rules, AI can recreate the game with convincing results. To learn more about this technology, visit NVIDIA’s blog.
