Nvidia’s AI recreates Pac-Man from scratch just by watching it being played article tells that Nvidia researchers taught an AI system to recreate the game of Pac-Man simply by watching it being played. There was no coding involved, no pre-rendered images for the software to draw on. The AI model is simply fed visual data of the game in action along with the accompanying controller inputs and then recreates it frame by frame from this information. The resulting game is playable by humans, and Nvidia says it will be releasing it online in the near future.
