Hi!

We are experimenting with a new format of news-telling. Instead of independent news stories, we are starting a daily news-wrap/newsletter that encapsulates all major news stories on one page. You don’t have to jump from one link to another. On this neatly curated page, you will get everything that you care about. Please share your thoughts about this format in the comments on Twitter.

Thanks

Here is why AI can’t beat humans at Angry Birds

Angry Birds is a game designed for kids (Rovio might disagree), it’s much simpler than say Assasin’s Creed. It should be a fair game for AI to beat humans at this game, but it turned out that birds and pigs of Angry Birds are not easy prey for AI. Two researchers – Ekaterina Nikonova and Jakub Gemrot – set out on their own journey to find why AI can’t beat humans at this game. They have published a paper that details why. In their summary they wrote: Angry Birds appears to be a difficult task to solve for artificially intelligent agents due to the sequential decision-making, non-deterministic game environment, enormous state and action spaces and requirement to differentiate between multiple birds, their abilities and optimum tapping times.”
