Patch 10.2 just launched, and it's already time to talk about World of Warcraft's next patch: patch 10.2.5, Seeds of Renewal.
If you've ever wanted your World of Warcraft characters to have their hair displaying under their helmets (instead of mysteriously vanishing), you might be in luck: there's a chance we're getting exactly that at some point in the future.
This is an interesting use of machine learning, and compared to what I'm always afraid they'll do with it -- namely, create a super AI that will realize how awful our species is and wipe us all out like the plague we are -- making Diablo 2 cutscenes sharper is a pretty good one.
Off Topic: AI aren’t good enough to win arguments (yet), but they’re already smart enough to be a little scary
Several years ago, the world watched IBM's Watson AI defeat the best Jeopardy players in the world.
We mentioned last month that Blizzard is working on AI specifically to fight toxicity in Overwatch -- but that doesn't mean they're not also working on other methods right now.
Blizzard has made it no secret it's being aggressive in its battle against toxicity in Overwatch.
I like playing Heroes of the Storm.
