AI Is Revolutionising the World’s Gaming Industry

AI Is Revolutionising the World’s Gaming Industry

AI was brought into focus in the gaming industry around 1997 when Deep Blue, a computer program at IBM, was found victorious at chess against a chess grandmaster, Garry Kasparov. Since then, AI in the gaming industry was developed, enabling a gaming revolution, which also had an impact on the realm of online casinos. Thus, giant companies in both the gaming and casino industry started looking for ingenious ways to attract new customers and retain the existing ones while expanding their brands.

Jargon like Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) are used very often in the gaming industry, the rise of Artificial Intelligence has become equally important. It is seen as the stepping stone to make games more innovative and more interactive so that the player has an experience as close to reality as possible. Trustworthy casino platforms such as AskGamblers are great examples of sites where players can find more info about topics like AI and virtual reality. Meanwhile, let’s take a look at how AI is expected to revolutionize the world’s gaming industry.

Smarter Games

Scripting is most commonly used to control NPCs (non-playable characters) in many games. Still, with the introduction of AI, the characters can learn from the actions taken by the player and modify their behaviour accordingly. Such games' ultimate goal is to have robust systems that can understand speech, noise, and other sounds inside the game and alter the scenes accordingly. It requires highly modern AI techniques like pattern recognition and reinforcement learning. Even though such AI techniques in games are limited, their use in the future has the entire iGaming industry buzzing.

Realistic Technology

Over the last ten years, the gaming industry has grown leaps and bounds with incredible advancements in 3D visualisations, virtual reality, augmented reality, and physic-based simulations. These features have ensured that developers can create interactive and visually appealing games. Games are not just graphics anymore. They have started resembling reality. Artificial Intelligence addressed this challenge. Now there are games where the characters can interpret your commands and respond to them while anticipating your next more and then acting accordingly.

Improved Overall Gaming Experience

Let's say you are playing FIFA 17. This game is an example of expert AI put to use to improve your gaming experience. In this fantasy draft, you can pick your choice of players, and AI will determine the team chemistry based on whom you have chosen as your teammates. This is done as higher the chemistry, better the chances of your team performing well. AI is also able to read the game and change accordingly. For example, if your team is losing, AI would detect it and react by boosting your team's morale by increased chanting in the stadium by fans, which positively affects the players. This AI's ability to customise itself in real-time has played a crucial role in taking the gaming experience to the next level.

Transformed Developer Skills

Game developers constantly have to up their skills and adopt new cutting-edge technology. This keeps their technical skills intact and hones their creativity. The adoption of AI in games has brought about a change in the way games are developed. With time, developers have started letting go of traditional gaming designs and are now more accepting of AI as a core design for games.

As AI is relatively new, some implementation challenges are as to how to incorporate such techniques into a game. However, with time, such AI algorithms will get embedded more seamlessly with traditional game development skills.

Mobile-Incorporated Smart Games

The mobile phone industry took the world by storm in the early 2000s, and it has not stopped one bit. Every year there is some new, more innovative technology being used to create super smartphones. This has also led to a rise in the customisation of earlier games played on PCs or consoles to now be accommodated in smartphones. This is why developers have faced an increasingly high demand for creating more immersive and interactive mobile games.

 The processing power of mobile phones is yet to match that of the desktop. To deal with this challenge, game developers are now experimenting with different machine learning and AI algorithms to impart 'smartness' to mobile games. Compared to mobiles phones five years ago, today's ones have had a powerful software and hardware upgrade and have become amazingly interactive. New machine learning and deep learning frameworks and libraries have been developed to address specifically the smartphone platform.

 Gone are the days when playing games was just for entertainment or passing the time. The gaming industry has grown to be one of the most profitable industries today. With time, the gaming industry and community's demands keep growing, and the games keep evolving. The need for realism in games is higher now more than ever, and AI has played a massive role in keeping up with this demand and making games more interactive, intelligent and immersive.
