World-first human-AI teaming in cooperative video game – hitting shelves later this year
London-based Wingman AI Agents Limited, a world leader in human-voice-directed AI technology announced today that it has formed a collaboration agreement with The Knights of Unity, an innovative and professional game development studio for Unity software, on the launch later this year of one of the Knights of Unity's upcoming games titles.
This “couch co-op” style game is slated for a world-first in human-AI teaming in games, putting deep-learning AI agents directly in the hands of players, posing novel and entertaining human-AI coordination challenges to succeed in the game. Players will be able to play with their friends, and will also have the option of having the AI play alongside them, listening to their commands, and doing its best to obey and help out the human players. The feature is expected to go live with the game's launch in later this year, once it has passed the Knights' stringent quality standards.
Wingman AI Agents Ltd have built a novel human-AI teaming platform that blends advanced deep-learning AI technology with human language and semantics to create agents that learn from, adapt to, and empower people in a vast range of areas. Wingman's recent partnership with ThayerMahan in the maritime and defense space shows how human/AI teams can enhance human capability in port and maritime security, and this games application of the technology proves that the agents can empower people in a vast range of areas.
