What impact will AI have on gaming?
AI will take over the entire game development process by early 2030s. There will be almost no need for human game developers. People can tell AI what game they want and it will build it in real-time.
AI has seen major improvements over the last few years, from GPT-3 and AI picture generation, to self-driving vehicles and drug discovery. Can machine learning improve games?
Note: AI is a broad term that has many subsets. In this article, I am referring to machine-learning algorithms.
The first question you should ask yourself is: Will AI actually change anything? Why would you use machine learning if you could just hardcode dialogues and movement? This question is best answered by replayability and immersive gameplay.
