The impact of artificial intelligence on the workforce is a hotly debated subject. In the world of gaming, however, AI is already replacing humans.




Facebook AI researchers say they built a bot that can exceed human performance in Hanabi, a cooperative game that requires players to interpret the actions and intentions of other players.




The achievement signals a jump in the capability of the technology to replicate the cognitive skills of humans, as opposed to the method of training the models through rewards and punishments that was used for other models.

Opinions are split on the magnitude of the impact that artificial intelligence will have on the workforce. In the gaming world, however, it's already displacing top human players.
Last month, Lee Se-dol — one of the top South Korean players in Go, a complex Chinese board game that dates back 2,500 years — announced he would retire because it became impossible to beat AI-powered bots. This comes after Se-dol lost a series of matches in 2016 to a bot developed by Google-owned AlphaGo.
Now, Hanabi may be next. Facebook researchers have built a bot they say can outperform the most skilled players at the cooperative card game that requires individuals to play off the hands of other participants because they are unable to view their own cards.
