The programme developed by Facebook experts and scientists from Carnegie Mellon University has become the absolute world champion after beating the world’s 12 best poker players.
According to the developers, the key factor was artificial intelligence’s bluffing skills. Along with its amazing mathematical abilities, the machine achieves what a Facebook employee Noam Brown describes as a “superhuman” game playing level. He believes there is no one in the word who can outperform it: the global lead can be taken away from it only by a more sophisticated programme.
The neural network developed is called Pluribus. In order to practice, the program played with its own clones, which helped the AI to realize that long-term strategies do not work in poker. Now the machine looks just a few moves ahead choosing a more aggressive play style. As the robot does not feel any emotions, it is better at bluffing than its human opponents.
