Google Plans To Use AI For Automated Game Testing

New patent reveals ‘Efficient Gameplay Training For Artificial Intelligence’

With recent advances in technology, artificial intelligence is now being utilised in a variety of new ways. Game developers are already using AI to generate graphics and first drafts of NPC barks. Now, it appears Google is planning to use AI to automate game testing.

Recently, Google published a patent for AI game testing. The tech giant’s Efficient Gameplay training for Artificial Intelligence patent description states that gameplay data models will be used to train a local actor component. This component will then utilise this training to perform real-time gameplay actions. A remote learning service generates the gameplay data models.

How Game Testing with Artificial Intelligence Works

A server computing system provides the remote learning service to a game developer’s computer. Additionally, the server computing system runs the gameplay data model. According to the patent’s description, the local actor component will generate observational data. This data is based on the results of the AI local actor’s gameplay actions.

“Based on the received observational data,” states the patent’s description, “The remote training service modifies the game data model and provides the modified game data model to the local actuation component to improve future artificial game actions.”

Google and AI

The Efficient Gameplay training for Artificial Intelligence patent is far from Google’s first foray into artificial intelligence. Recently, the company launched Bard AI for UK and US users over 17. Google Bard is the tech giant’s new chatbot that aims to compete with ChatGPT. Another of Google’s Ai projects, PaLM API, is an AI enterprise tool that can generate and edit text.

In addition to its other AI endeavours, Google is developing a music-generating AI. MusicLM generates tracks based on prompts. Users can also hum or whistle a tune which MusicLM can then convert into a music style the user chooses.
