RE­SEARCHERS GIVE AI CU­RIOS­ITY

CU­RIOS­ITY KILLED THE AI.

TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

Ma­chine learn­ing sys­tems, till now, had clearly set goals ­— but new re­search from Open AI shows that soft­ware can be given ar­ti­fi­cial cu­rios­ity, al­low­ing it to learn new things. By re­ward­ing the dis­cov­ery of novel screen­shots, al­go­rithms were un­leashed onto 50 video games with no learn­ing pa­ram­e­ters. This oc­ca­sion­ally led to the soft­ware beat­ing the game, but it also re­sulted in sui­ci­dal bots that died just to see the end game screen.
