Can video games make artificial intelligence more intelligent? with Adam Stooke

In the past few years, deep neural networks have burst onto the scene of artificial intelligence. Scientists commonly test these networks by teaching them to play video games, helping them develop better algorithms to accomplish more serious tasks. Adam will describe why neural networks are often able to outperform humans in many Atari video games, even when the network can only use screen images as input. He’ll also explore what challenges lay ahead in the field of artificial intelligence.
