Casino Gaming Industry Vs The Newly Developed AI

Brain VS AI

Mobile Casino industry is becoming a monster and in a good way, and is growing faster than any other online gambling-related niche. Mobile gambling is a new trend in gambling people prefer it on going to casinos which are not available everywhere, So now with this new growing trend you can enjoy a little game hand from the comfort of your couch. I can tell you that right now. There’s something about the convenience and fun that people, myself included, are able to gain from gambling on their mobile or tablet devices.

In this day and age everyone wants to consume their time more efficiently, If you are commuting from work you have hours to spend. There’s nothing to do while commuting, yet you have your mobile phone with you. Given that you have an active internet connection either via wifi or cellular data, you could very easily get through those hours in a heartbeat – by participating in your favorite form of gambling, I for one like to visit the casino, it is easy to access and fairly easy games to play.

Mobile devices are faster and more efficient now and in some cases faster than most laptops, with bigger screens more ram, and processors which can land a manned mission on the moon. There are hardly any great mobile casinos out there. Most of them are just duplicates of others and very mediocre. Though it is not all that bad and there are a couple of operators that will certainly impress you and exceed your expectations in regards to what makes a great mobile gambling experience.

As I mentioned above you can enjoy mobile casinos from anywhere and that is the best part because you don’t have to drive to some other state or commute for hours to get to one. Those brick & mortar casinos required you to be in a single location for the whole time. Online casinos, while already improved, require you to carry your computer with you. On the other hand, mobile and tablet casinos allow you to do as you want and when you want you to have all the power you need to play your game, No prying eyes or expensive cocktails.

Now, even AI has joined the club and The AI, called Libratus is here and challenging in the real world, Recently engineers put it to test and it was up $1,766,250 in chips by the end of the experiment when it finally beat the four pros in competition at Rivers Casino! Yep, they are taking over everywhere and in no time they will be deployed but for time being it is in the testing phase. The players who participated in the study played nearly constantly, conferring on strategy after each day of play. The AI didn’t originally know how to play poker. Instead, the researchers told it to try things at random until, after trillions of hands, it learned a winning strategy. The humans played the AI for 11 hours a day, finishing at 10 pm every night, for twenty days.

“The best AI’s ability to do strategic reasoning with imperfect information has now surpassed that of the best humans,” said Tuomas Sandholm, professor of computer science and co-creator of the AI.

“Whenever you play a top player at poker, you learn from it,” he said.

And it is the most clever AI which also “fixed” its strategy daily, assessing where it failed in the previous day’s competition. It is learning and getting smarter every time it plays.

“After the play ended each day, a meta-algorithm analyzed what holes the pros had identified and exploited in Libratus’ strategy,” said Sandholm. “It then prioritized the holes and algorithmically patched the top three using the supercomputer each night. This is very different than how learning has been used in the past in poker. Typically researchers develop algorithms that try to exploit the opponent’s weaknesses. In contrast, here the daily improvement is about algorithmically fixing holes in our own strategy.”
