AI wrote its own version of the Super Mario games Source:

Previously, the program of artificial intelligence watched as we play video games, and then tried to repeat after the man, and also held the game. So the AI learned to play and copes with different video games for the Atari consoles. Therefore, researchers at the American Institute of Technology Georgia state decided to go ahead and teach artificial intelligence to recreate what they see video games independently.

The team has published in the "Game Engine Learning from Video", where is described the process of recreating the artificial intelligence of the game, which he showed earlier. Interestingly, the AI could only watch the gameplay, but access to the code of the game had. While the program is not very well cope with the task: the game is buggy, but nevertheless to take them all down is still possible.

To teach the program to recreate the previously seen games, the developers have provided the AI with a visual dictionary which contains all the game sprites, and even gave the program a set of basic concepts about the position of all objects and their speed. So the AI could focus on video, analyzing what he «sees». Watching the game from the side, artificial intelligence, time-lapse breaks the gameplay, marks seen through the tokens and by matching the picture with its documentation, is recreating the game yourself.

While AI is able to work with 2D platformers. He has several successfully recreated games, including a Super Mario Bros. and Megaman, but in the future the developers plan to expand opportunities of the program by teaching it to do 3D games on video.
