It seems that Terminator, Matrix and many other movies that talk about the extinction of the human race by machines have taught us nothing because while we continue to progress toward autonomous artificial intelligence, a new report ensures that EVE Online video game has taken over itself and is beginning to conduct battles between it and Itself without guidance or human management.
The artificial intelligence of online role-playing was out of control and released a battle between three cosmic fleets (pirates, miners and nomads) without any human involvement.
In November 2017, the CCP Games Company published an update that expanded the possibilities of so-called "non-player characters" (NPCs) and that was when they started fighting for control of the territories
Thus the "pirates" began to take control of the area and the resources of the "miners", when suddenly appeared the proportion of "nomads" in the industry. "It is not known whether it was an accident, or if artificial intelligence responded to their actions," media reports. Then, the pirates and another part – the flotilla of Amar's empire – united and fought together against the common enemy. The Amar flotilla defeated the nomads, but the pirates betrayed them and they were given battle.
"It is not known whether it was an accident, or if artificial intelligence has responded to their actions," said the 3Dnews portal.
CCP Games has opened a study to learn more about the risks to this game outside the control of artificial intelligence and how these consequences will go.
