It has happened to all of us: One works and works to reach the major leagues on their own merits, while others go to the right and get things “over the right”, cheating. It gives a lot of courage, but the solution is not to become one of them, but to find them and give them just punishment, fortunately Microsoft is already working hard on that.
According to a report from the generationxbox site, Microsoft is already developing a new Artificial Intelligence that will serve to detect cheats within the Xbox platform in order to better the user experience.
The report comes after Microsoft registered a patent in the US Patent and Trademark Office of the United States in relation to the design and application of a new technology of artificial intelligence with learning capacity and detection of traps and tricks in video games.
The new technology of Microsoft for Xbox would work analyzing the code of the games to find other elements like tricks or external programs. The technology that Microsoft has registered allows us to analyze the data and interactions between the game, the network that allows you to connect it to the internet as Xbox Live and the external servers that operate on the title in question.
Analyzing the data of achievements, rankings and scores, the AI makes a global calculation and looks for abnormal behaviors and strange activities. Given that it is a huge amount of information to analyze, Microsoft has preferred that it is an artificial intelligence with learning or machine learning, since a process regulated by written code and updatable by the human factor would be much less efficient and slow.
Microsoft has not officially reported on their plans, nor if it is a fact that will apply this technology, but when they register this type of patent is because they will do something with them.
