Artificial intelligence (AI would impact nearly all aspects of human activity). It affects many industries and economic sectors, including online gambling. Companies are trying to find out how and to what extent AI can be used in their areas. Let’s look at the impact of AI technology on online casinos.
Over 20 years ago the world-famous chess master Garry Kasparov lost to the IBM computer Deep Blue. In six games, the computer beat Kasparov by 3.5 to 2.5. This ushered in a time in which artificial intelligence gradually became and is becoming more and more important in our society. AI’s transformation also impacts the gambling and online casino sectors.
How much AI technology has developed since then can also be seen in the gaming industry. In January 2017, the computer program Libratus, which is based on artificial intelligence, beat some of the best poker players in the world in heads-up No-Limit Hold’em poker. The opponents of the AI were:
- Dong Kim
- Daniel MacAulay
- Jimmy Chou
- Jason Les
On a sample size of 120,000 hands, Libratus was able to convince with a win rate of 14.7 big blind / 100 hands. This corresponds to a very high win rate with meaningful sample size. But that’s only the start of AI’s gambling effect. The way casinos work will also change in the future with AI and VR casinos.
