Gamers will influence AI on how to control military drone swarms

Browse By

Gamers could before long be guiding military robots after specialists won a grant to investigate what they can teach an AI controlling swarms of drones.

Researchers from the University of Buffalo will study the decisions, brainwaves and eye movements of individuals playing video games. They will at that point utilize this information to construct an AI that can control autonomous air and ground robots.

The members will play a real-time technique game created by the research group that is comparable identical to any semblance of Starcraft and Company of Heroes, UBNow uncovered.

While they play, the scientists will record their decisions, track their eye movements with high-speed cameras, and monitor their brain wave patterns through electroencephalography (EEG) headsets.

The information they extract will be utilized to make algorithms that guide swarms of up to 250 military drones.

“We don’t want the AI system just to mimic human behavior; we want it to form a deeper understanding of what motivates human actions. That’s what will lead to more advanced AI,” principal investigator Chowdhury told UBNow.

The investigation will be funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which recently published a video indicating how its drone swarms could conduct an urban raid.

StarCraft specialists left unimpressed by DARPA’s endeavors currently get an opportunity to show that their strategies are superior.
