Meta researchers have created an artificial intelligence (AI) called CICERO. It can play Diplomacy better than many humans. This is a significant development, as Diplomacy is a highly complex game requiring players to be strategic.
Diplomacy is a board game in which players represent different countries and attempt to achieve diplomatic objectives through various means, including negotiation, alliances, and military force. Over the years, Diplomacy has been one of the most difficult challenges for AI researchers. They’ve been trying to create computer programs that can replicate or exceed human performance in this complex task. Even today, this challenge remains an essential goal for many in the AI community.
CICERO’s victory shows that AI can outperform humans in complex games requiring a deep understanding of strategy and human behaviour. The rapid advances in AI technology in recent years have profoundly impacted the world of competitive gaming, and CICERO’s success is a clear indication that AI is becoming increasingly skilled at these types of games.
The implications of this research are far-reaching, and it’s not immediately clear how Meta plans to capitalize on it. However, Meta does believe that CICERO can help improve chatbots in the real world by making them more efficient and effective communicators.
