Minecraft is to become a testing ground for artificial intelligence experiments.
Microsoft, owner of the popular video game, revealed that computer scientists and amateurs will be able to evaluate and develop AI software using its virtual landscapes from July.
The company says Minecraft is more “sophisticated” than existing AI research simulations and cheaper to use than building a robot.
One expert said it had great potential.
