AI Agents Can Learn New Physical Skills On Their Own

OpenAI, an Elon Musk-funded nonprofit that researches artificial intelligence, discovered that AI agents could more easily be trained in competitive self-play environments wherein the agents train against each other and are rewarded for "winning" a game.

  1. That was a weird video to watch, but interesting.
  2. Ironically I would assume sumo wrestlers would be the worst at walking against a wind.

    Sounds like a myth for the Mythbusters to test.
  3. Actually, this is freggin Awesome. They have basically created a computer that can think, at least on a basic level. In the video, the computers have to figure out how to deal with different challenges and manage to overcome them to win. Can you imagine playing a video game that learns how you fight?! As this technology scales up, can you imagine the possibilities beyond games? Quite frankly, it is mind boggling, and perhaps a little worrisome.

    I think that would largely depend on the ratio of surface area / mass. Going by the equation:

    Quote:
    Force = mass * acceleration


    If force is constant, increasing the mass, as in sumo wrestlers who have a large mass, will experience a lower acceleration. So the wind should have less of an effect on sumo wrestler.

    There is more to it, though. Since sumo wrestlers generally have a larger mass, they usually also have a larger surface area. If surface area increases, the force applied will increase since the force is the integration or addition of all the tiny little pieces of wind force hitting every part of the body. So in reality, a sumo wrestler experiences both an increase in mass and force in the above equation.

    However, I believe the change in mass is more significant than the change in force, and since the change in mass trumps the change in force, acceleration has to decrease to keep the equivalence true, hence why sumo wrestlers should be better against the wind.

    To exemplify this, someone way gain 25% more weight but their frontal surface area may only increase by about 10% since it really depends on how that additional mass is distributed about the body, and you have to take into account the three-dimensional aspects of the various parts of the human body.
  5. Interesting that all their athletes look like Fred Astaire doing sports.
  6. Maybe it's just coincidence, but I was watching a movie called "The Matrix" earlier this week and AI Agents were learning new physical skills on their own in that too.
  7. Skynet in 3...2...1...ROFL. Seriously, skynet in 10-20yrs tops probably. Some idiot will let the genie out of the bottle in the name of science thinking they can manage it or it will just escape on it's own. Look how fast AI etc is jumping already. In 20yrs graphics have went from 3mil transistors to 12.5B! We are speeding up it seems as most of those came in the last 5-7yrs.
