Is Artificial Intelligence Capable of Writing Reviews on Video Games?
Is artificial intelligence capable of writing reviews on video games? If I had to choose, I would say yes. Why? Because it is one of the most important things that a computer can be used for. Therefore, I would say it is smart technology. And given the advances we have seen in technology over the last few years, including Artificial Intelligent software, computer scientists have made great strides toward mastering the ability to write intelligent reviews on games.
Of course, humans will still have to do the heavy lifting and write the reviews. However, this task has been made somewhat easier through the use of artificial intelligence. In fact, researchers have already created a computer program which can write a review on a variety of games with a high level of accuracy. Their work has been published in an academic journal.
The first question that comes to mind is how does artificial intelligence to perform this task. The answer is rather simple. Researchers place images or text from a game into a language processor and use language algorithms to translate these two items into something that humans can understand. Again, they are using language as an analogy. However, there is more to the process than just translating words.
The second question that may be asked is if the software is only capable of translation and not writing. To ensure the answer is yes, researchers must create software that can also write its own reviews on video games. The software must be able to compose a review based on what the human brain notices while playing the game. If the software is successful in achieving this, it will provide entertainment for users while also offering insight into the content or storyline of the game.
Now, let’s say the software is only capable of translation. It will just translate text into a foreign language and then call the person who programmed it a genius. It will then have to translate that text back into English so it can be read. Now, many people would be impressed by this. However, for the human brain, that could potentially be quite boring. This is why the next question to ask is, can artificial intelligence be smart enough to understand the difference between a game’s storyline and the actions of the game designer?
Video games have always had a great deal of controversy surrounding their use. One of the biggest problems is that the majority of the game developer websites do not allow any form of criticism of the game. Therefore, artificial intelligence will need to come up with a way to add a reviewer feature to the system. Of course, this will make the system less intelligent. Nevertheless, artificial intelligence developers must come up with a way to add a human element to the system. For example, a game designer may be able to add a comment box to their artificial intelligence review system where a player can write in and critique a game’s performance.
That brings us to the final topic I want to discuss. Do you believe that artificial intelligence is going to be capable of writing actual reviews on video games? The short answer is yes. As I have indicated throughout this article, artificial intelligence will be capable of recognizing the specific characteristics that make a video game good.
Video games have been a part of our lives since the first Atari. We have all, at one point or another, purchased or rented a video game. Even the earliest game consoles were equipped with some form of artificial intelligence. With that in mind, I believe it is entirely possible that artificial intelligence can be utilized to write actual reviews on video games. In fact, I think it is possible that we may already be seeing artificial intelligent systems reviewing games before we ever see them in full-length movies.
