Why did I not file that letter to the news paper saying I'd invented a "teleporter"...
I'm guessing this AI goes as far as the claims that come from the likes of Will Wright and Peter Molyneux.
Why would we question it? AI is a common feature of most games, in varying degrees. AI
defines it as just: "a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success." (for example, basically anything in a game that has a goal(shoot you, capture the king, etc.) and reacts to what you do to try and achieve that goal, would be AI)
I suspect you're thinking that the term AI is referring to Strong AI
, or general intelligence or such. That would be huge, but then that's not the claim that's being made, as AI, especially as used by people who work on it, typically just refers to the first definition.
