Minesweeper AI VS human WORLD RECORD

  • Published on Apr 15, 2018
  • I test out my mine sweeper AI against the best human player
    Also I added more bombs in to see how many it could take

    Your ai needs more parameters. There are many situations in which the ai picks randomly when the location of mines can be deduced by numbers not directly adjacent. A human player can solve maps with many mines consistently where your ai tries and fails dozens of times before finding a map easy enough to be solved without more complex parameters.

    Can you try creating an infinite grid with a fixed amount of average bombs per 5x5 grid and letting the AI solve it till eternity, or until it dies?

    I think the only thing you are missing is that most of the time there are multiple squares with the same lowest chance of being a mine. Some squares are likely to reveal more information than others.

    That last grid was way too small, cmon.. only 128 x 72.. YES I COUNTED

    Hey, have you thought of putting an AI to play against an AI in some 2 player game?

    The thing I love about Code Bullet is he would rather sit there watching his inefficient code take an hour to process than spend 20 minutes making it more efficient and having it complete in 5

    Watching the perfect algorithm fail on its first click makes me feel much better about my playstyle which also has me lose in the very first or second move most of the time.

    Is this AI really perfect?

    Muranski's Expert Minesweeper WR is one of the most amazing records in all gaming - when you realise just how exaxctly perfect his choices and execution are.

    I recommend having your AI read #2's better, that is almost a requirement in getting consistent at harder maps

    Thanks for showing what an increased bomb density does. It's fascinating to see how the difficulty increases seemingly exponentially as you increase the bomb density.

    This version of Code Bullet is so much more polite than his future self

    I feel like there actually is a way for an AI to learn how to play minesweeper overtime instead of just being hardcoded. Maybe if you kept it on the exact same map every single time with the same arrangements, and possibly keep it spawning in the same area everytime. Once it completes that course, you could give it another, then another, and see how it does

    When it failed/struggles with 150 bombs I wonder if it’s some sort of density issue.

    I love how you can appeal to both coders and non coders, by explaining the coding, and by making something interesting. Thank you, and keep making these videos

    It's interesting that your AI sometimes dies when there are moves it could make that are 100% safe.

    Your videos are very inspiring as I delve into the wonderful world of ai. Thanks for publishing your work!

    That AI is impressive! insanely so! I know, programmatically, that isn't too insanely complex, but to do so with the human mind and only three contraceptive descriptors intellectually, that is quite impressive, my props!
