As recently reported by PlaystationLifestyle.net, Sony Interactive Entertainment (“Sony”) has filed a patent application for an artificial intelligence (“AI”) system to help inexperienced players select appropriate tools and weapons for computerized games.
While the application was originally filed last year, it was only recently published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Sony explained that the AI system was developed in response to amateur players becoming frustrated by picking the wrong tools or weapons in games. The AI system will employ a machine learning algorithm to determine which tools more successful players use and, based on that information, it will recommend the applicable tools that less experienced players should use. These recommendations will be made visually and/or audibly.
