Artificial intelligence is making rounds again. With improved features and refurbished additions AI integrated poker champions are bringing their human counterparts to their knees with substantial trailing points. AI dedicated scientists from leading universities such as Now Carnegie Mellon University in collaboration with Facebook AI experts have come together to further customize capabilities with AI integrated Pluribus. A group of over 12 human poker players played against AI specialized players. The fate of the tournament was certainly in favor of the AI integrated players, bringing the human players to a thwarting defeat. The players comprised top poker players of tremendous fame. One Chris Ferguson, an acclaimed multiple time winner of World Series of Poker Events and Darren Elias were some of the leading human competitors who put up a rather distressing show opposite AI poker player, Pluribus.
However this bizarre incident is not certainly the first of its kind. Similar human-AI poker championships have been doing the rounds for quite some time now. However the impact of this experimental tournament has certainly exceeded expectations across multiple parameters. Back in 2015, Sandholm's very first AI driven poker player, Claudico challenged a team of four professional human poker players, the AI integrated player had not tasted victory after playing for over two weeks. Later in 2017, another AI powered poker player, Libratus made a remarkable win over a team of seasoned poker players, winning by a huge margin of over &1.7 million.
