NVIDIA is developing a multitude of artificial intelligence products and for deep learning, especially its products that use artificial neural networks for the HPC sector, but also some improvements that AI can bring to the video game consumer sector, as is the case with this GeForce GTX G-Assist that today we present.
Have you ever imagined that a device could play a game of a video game for you? That you had a digital "partner" who could be very competitive in video games and be able to compete at a high level while you do something else, such as enjoying food, your drink, resting a bit, or taking a break to go to the bathroom … Well that's what NVIDIA proposes with this product.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX G-Assist is a small USB device with an aspect that imitates a graphics card of this firm, but that hides a product that goes beyond graphics, and that is that you can connect it to your PC to act as a gamer. Yes, as you are listening to, it will be a player so that he can take over from video game games without you having to do anything.
Nonsense? Well, you may think that the good thing about the videogames it is precisely having fun playing games, and that a device like the GeForce GTX G-Assist could take that fun away from you. But the truth is that it does not have that objective. For what it can help you is to:
- Imagine that you have to eat or drink something, and you cannot use your hands to continue playing your game.
- Maybe you need to go to the bathroom or stretch your joints a bit.
- Or maybe for framers, without having to have people try to raise the level of a video game character or score points. Now this AI will do it for you.
- If there is a screen that is choking you and you want to pass it to play new content without having to fail over and over again.
In those cases, being absent from the game could be a problem. Ok, you may think that you can put the game on pause, but what happens when it is a multiplayer video game. Doing that would not be possible, and being absent would mean leaving your team hanging, and you could lose the game for that. Therefore, this type of video game could be annoying in those circumstances, forcing you not to withdraw from the screen.
Now with GeForce GTX G-Assist you can do it without any impediment. The artificial intelligence of this device will continue to play to the video game as if you were at the controls. And he does it quite well ...
