The creation of machines with human-level intelligence has long been seen as the ultimate ambition of computer science. New developments in machine learning, coupled with exponential growth in both data and processing power, suggest the time may be ripe to take the next steps towards this elusive goal. In this talk, we will go through machine learning and deep learning efforts that can enrich the gaming experience through new interaction models: gestures, speech, vision, semantics. One of the underlying foundations is the Computational Network Toolkit (CNTK) - a unified deep-learning toolkit that describes neural networks as a series of computational steps via a directed graph. CNTK enables more accurate results regarding vision and speech understanding and thus can lead to scenarios that go beyond the classical screen game play, such as augmented reality.
