Artificial Intelligence Agent outplays human and the in Game AI in Doom Video Game

An artificial intelligence agent developed by two Carnegie Mellon University computer science students has proven to be the game’s ultimate survivor —, outplaying both the game’s built-in AI agents and human players.

The students, Devendra Chaplot and Guillaume Lample, used deep-learning techniques to train the AI agent to negotiate the game’s 3-D environment, still challenging after more than two decades because players must act based only on the portion of the game visible on the screen.
