Humans may no longer be required to brainstorm over creating exciting video games as a new AI system developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology takes just minutes to observe and recreate an existing game on its own.

The AI is trained to reverse engineer the software code without ever accessing it, a capability that lets it create its own version, new levels and environment, notes Seeker.

Currently, the model is limited to replicating 2D games like Super Mario Brothers, 2D titles, Mega Man and others, but the team plans to scale the system for applications in training and education scenarios, writes New Atlas
