Super Upgraded StarCraft AI Still Beat by Humans

Are you good at StarCraft? Even if you're not a superstar in Korea, maybe you're good enough to beat the computer AI that's built by Blizzard. Perhaps what will really challenge you is an AI built by university programmers.

The AIIDE 2010 StarCraft AI Competition was held last week at the University of California, and had different AIs and even humans battling it out for supremacy… all in the name of research, of course.

=DoGo=, a World Cyber Games 2001 competitor, played against the top ranking AI at AIIDE 2010 and won! Score one for the humans.

Check out all the details at the EIS Blog, as well as plenty of videos from the matches.

    I just watched this last night... if they become self aware and we try to pull the plug, the worst this system can do now is release the Zerg on unsuspecting SCII players online...

  • AI should be able to beat humans, if written correctly and efficiently.
    AI has the advantage of processing speed, and almost zero delay between actions.

    It's obvious that the guys who wrote the AI don't really know how StarCraft is played.
