Electronic Arts have created a brand new AI that has the capabilities to self-teach, the AI has already taught itself how to play Battlefield and gets smarter and smarter with every game it plays.

Electronic Arts has a separate division called SEED, 'Search for Extraordinary Experiences Division' and the teams technical director Magnus Nordin has created a "self-learning-agent" that has the capabilities to teach itself Battlefield gameplay.

Nordin took to this blog post to explain what has exactly happened here, he begun by asking himself "how much effort it would take to have a self-learning agent learn to play a modern and more complex first person AAA game like Battlefield"

From the above video we can see that the AI that has been created can sustain basic gameplay performance in Battlefield 1, Nordin commented on the humans vs AI fight, saying "while the human players outperformed the agents, it wasn't a complete blowout by any stretch."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
