Sony Patent Will Allow AI Clone To Play Games For You, What’s Next, Watching Movies For You?

The title might sound hyperbolic, perhaps even ridiculous, but think again. AI clones, we don’t need them for entertainment, right? The following game-related patent sounds appealing, but think about it more carefully.

The patent also points out that games may be able to flag if a player needed AI help to beat a task. “If the AI character has completed specific tasks, those tasks can be identified as being completed by the user with assistance from the AI game controller,” it explains.

Another example given is online multiplayer co-op games, where a player may need to leave the game to eat or work. In this situation, instead of the game having to end, the player can turn on the ‘automatic mode’ and have the AI play with their friends in their absence until they can return to take over again.

Sony has patented an AI that will play your games for you

A major part of the satisfaction in gaming is beating your previous best score, reaching new game levels, beating an end boss. These all require your own skills. That all goes out the window if someday you can have your AI clone buddy sub out your gameplay.

If we have AI clones that can sub for us when we’re eating, it’s not too far-fetched to suggest the AI clone will do other tasks we don’t have time for like, yeah, read books, watch movies. Imagine tasking your AI clone with catching up on the new Stephen King book because you don’t want to sit down and experience it yourself, or sit through the 10 episode TV season or, gasp, watch the newest movie so you don’t have to spend the two plus hours. Your AI clone could report back what you might have thought of it, because it knows you so well.

I’m one of the most tech-friendly guys out there, but don’t want an AI clone to do any of the things mentioned above. I want to experience human created art directly and personally, not through some sort of artificial proxy. I don’t like using the word “never” but here it fits: never.

Now, what I might be interested in is playing against an AI clone in a game. We are already doing this in some games, I’m sure. What tougher computer opponent could there be than one that plays like you do? But, um, it’s a big N-O to having an AI clone someday experience entertainment for me.

Then again, maybe someday my AI clone will write these posts. Why not?

1 Day To Terminator: Dark Fate – What is The Best Movie In The Series?

The #CREATEYOURFATE contest was for budding filmmakers to make a trailer

Rewatched, rated and reviewed Terminator 2: Judgment Day ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . This is, in my opinion, the most entertaining, best Terminator in the series. I haven’t seen Terminator: Dark fate yet, so maybe in a couple days I’ll be declaring that superior to T2, but that seems highly unlikely.

In fact, I think there’s a better chance I’ll run into a terminator in my lifetime than Dark Fate being the best movie in the franchise.

This doesn’t mean I’m going into seeing Dark Fate expecting it to be bad. In fact, I’m hoping it will be somewhere between the first and second movie. It would be amazing if it was better than the first movie, but, again, doubtful it can pull that off, but I’ve got an open mind.

Entertain me, Dark Fate!

Other movies watched recently with central artificial intelligence theme:

  • All other Terminator movies
  • Her ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
  • Jexi ⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Countdown ⭐️⭐️½ (ok, it’s a cursed phone application movie, but close to AI)
  • A.M.I ⭐️½

Will Terminator: Dark Fate be the last film in the franchise or the start of a new trilogy? Below is my final video on the film before watching and reviewing…
