OpenAI’s latest AI learned to play Minecraft by watching 40,000 hours of YouTube.
This allowed the AI to learn by watching human actions, rather than testing random actions, and predict actions taken using past and future information.
Unlike previous attempts at creating Minecraft algorithms, OpenAI’s plays in the same environment as humans using the equivalent of mouse and keyboard actions, making this a huge leap in AI technology.
The company, which specialises in artificial intelligence, has developed a video pre-training (VPT) algorithm that allows its AI to learn through viewing.
