Google’s DeepMind artificial intelligence program AlphaStar will battle attendees at BlizzCon 2019 in matches of the classic Blizzard real-time strategy game StarCraft 2.
In the Blizzard Arcade section of the fan event in Anaheim, California, Blizzard has set up machines for fans to play against the AI system.
This battle is likely to be fruitless for BlizzCon fans.
The AI is reportedly better than 99.8% of StarCraft 2 players.
A decade ago, this would have been a funny joke.
But this means it can probably beat me, which is not such a difficult task.
