Xbox CFO Tim Stewart speaks enthusiastically about artificial intelligence but does not address its impact on the human factor: “It will be a turning point in video games.”
the artificial intelligence It is a hot topic of debate in the video game industry, and in many other technology industries, due to its vast, almost infinite and unpredictable possibilities… but also due to some points of concern.
Tim StewartXbox’s CFO, gave his opinion on the role of artificial intelligence in the industry, which he considers one of the greatest revolutions in video games, comparable only to the introduction of the digital format.
Speaking at the Wells Fargo TMT Summit (via GameSpot) Xbox’s CFO spoke about Amnesty International Enthusiastically, although it did not take into account the potential human factor that machine intervention could bring to the lives (and jobs) of thousands of people.
Artificial Intelligence can make us all video game creators
Stewart focuses on the potential of AI to instantly solve problems that previously required “writing thousands of lines of code.” He offers as an example that games like Minecraft can use AI to figure out where players get stuck most often.
But the most important thing is that with AI, video game development becomes cheaper. Not only is this good for a huge company like Microsoft (which laid off thousands of people this year), it’s good for you, too. Or for anyone who wants to become an independent developer.
“Anyone in this room can be a game developer. If your local Starbucks waiter has a great idea for a game, he can use AI to create a great mobile experience“Stewart said.
Maybe not all games work, but wait A new wave of video game creators thanks to artificial intelligence.
The indie revolution, in the early 2000s, when tools like Unity became more accessible, allowed many people to develop their own video games. Now, with AI, it’s easier than before… but that doesn’t mean that games have to have a “human factor”, something that AI can’t imitate.
