EA is creating its own Battlefield bots using the Search for Extraordinary Experiences Division (SEED). SEED’s aim is to provide a self-learning AI that is able to teach itself to play games. This isn’t a pre-programmed system; the bots literally play and learn as they go.
If SEED is able to successful create an AI that accurately imitates how gamers play, they could become a vital resource for pre-launch testing.
