Programmer Harrison Kinsley (Harrison Kinsley) under the nickname Sentdex created the artificial intelligence system Charles. "Charlie" refers to the category of so-called convolutional neural networks and is now "learning" the process of driving.
Kinsley acted out of the box and instead of trying to test and teach the autopilot in the real world, he started the process of deep machine learning in the game Grand Theft Auto V. Moreover, the process is broadcast in Twitch in real time. While Charles has not been particularly successful in accident-free driving and is not too good at avoiding collisions with other cars, signs, dividers and people. As Kinsley notes, Charles bases his actions, reading the data on a time basis, making decisions based only on the graphic image and "only sees what the users see." In other words, the drones act as they would, relying only on the performance of cameras on real roads. Moreover, Kingsley has not yet programmed a "memory" and Charles does not yet know how to memorize, instead, attention is focused on making instant decisions. In the future, he plans to program "short-term memory" to improve the parameters of the office.
