AI makes Lara Croft ‘self-aware’ in Tomb Raider, a glimpse into the future of video games

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

An experimental video shows what video games could feel like if characters were aware of and responsive to themselves and their surroundings.

YouTuber Foxmaster took on the classic game “Tomb Raider” in its original version. Using various AI tools for machine vision, localization, object recognition, animation, text, and speech, he breathed digital life into the game character, or more specifically, a Lara Croft bot that controls its own character.

First of all, it is not clear from the video to what extent the individual components of the project have been fully implemented. The description states that the video is “possibly inaccurate” and intended for entertainment purposes.
