Libratus algorithm Beats humans In poker
In, this program lost to Four masters of poker
The tournament Brains vs artificial Intelligence was held for daysEvery day from a.m. to p.M, four professional poker players Spent time at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, trying to Beat the Libratus algorithm in No-limit Texas hold'em. According to professional gambler Jason Les, Libratus, created by scientists From Carnegie Mellon University, has Exceeded expectations, and his team Has not yet been successful. the victory had a demoralizing Effect on the participants of The competition. The outcome of the tournament Really came as a surprise, Considering how uneven the game was. Humanity lost the first game. The algorithm, which worked out The strategy of playing the Game for million hours, won $, And real players only $. On the fourth day of The tournament, people began to Beat Libratus. The algorithm was accused of Lack of intuition and ingenuity, And critics began to bet On its defeat. Many recalled Libratus predecessor, the Claudico algorithm, also developed by Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. According to Jason Les, the New algorithm is significantly superior To its predecessor. The secret to Libratus success Lies in continuous practice and indefatigability.
According to the Guardian, after The end of the games, People prepared for the next Game and went to bed Late, and the algorithm improved The strategy on a supercomputer.
Bridges all night. In the morning, the bot Was updated and with new Knowledge entered the next game Without fatigue and lack of sleep.
Last year, a real breakthrough In the field of artificial Intelligence was the victory of Deepmind's AlphaGo algorithm over Go champion Lee SEDOL.
The event also came as A surprise to many
Unlike go and other table Games, poker is characterized by Incomplete information.
There is no Board in Front of the player with The placement of checkers, in Order to win, participants have To bluff.
Libratus co-Creator Noam brown Emphasizes that the game of Poker is not based on Reading the opponent's emotions And guessing their actions, as People think, but on cards And probabilities.
And Libratus can easily handle this. The scientist believes that the Victory of the algorithm will Allow you to get rid Of biases against machine intelligence. Algorithms like Libratus are capable Of more than just beating People at gambling. They can negotiate, strategize a Battle, or plan actions for The future. cybersecurity, as well as make A treatment plan. Strategic thinking with an incomplete Information picture is the main Advantage of algorithms.
At the same time, some Experts believe that machine intelligence Does not cope well with Tasks in conditions of unpredictability.
But the victory of Libratus Refutes this thesis.
