Coming Soon to Xbox Game Pass for Console: Halo: Reach, Tom Clancy’s The Division, and Many More

As a kid, I would park myself in front of the TV to play games, usually close enough that I could reach out and put my grubby hands on the screen. My father, probably frustrated that he couldn‘t watch TV for dads, like extreme professional lawn mowing tournaments or something, always said that when I grew into an adult, I wouldn’t care about playing games anymore. How very wrong he was. I’m sure you’re with me. Not only do I still play games, I still love to play some of the same ones I did back then (Halo: Reach anybody? Age of Empires II?). I play games based on cartoons; I make Spotify playlists of best video game soundtracks (which – reminder! You can get 6 months of Spotify Premium, and 1 month of EA Access and 3 months of Discord Nitro with your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership rig...

This 16-game arcade for AIs tests their playing prowess

It’s one of those aspects of AI research that never fails to delight: the ways an agent will bend or break the rules in its endeavors to appear good at whatever the researchers are asking it to do. Cheating may be thinking outside the box, but it isn’t always welcome, and one way to check is to change the rules a bit and see if the system breaks down. Clever hide-and-seek AIs learn to use tools and break the rules What the agent actually learned can...
