The first sport created by AI: researchers unveil & # 39; Speedgate & # 39; with six players, made by combining rules from 400 other games
- A.I. is to practice his knowledge of sport by creating his own game
- By using inputs from 400 other sports, the computer system has & # 39; speedgate & # 39; made
- Speedgate is a mix of rugby, lacrosse and other sports that have been tested by people
- Not all sports proposed by the A.I. were hits, such as & # 39; blunt horse saws & # 39;
Inventing unique ways to test the body's limits through sport is about the most human exercise that people can do.
That is precisely why artificial intelligence participates in pleasure.
AKQA design agency says it has introduced & # 39; the world's first ever sport, designed by artificial intelligence, that & # 39; speedgate & # 39;
The game, according to the company, was created by running rules from 400 different sports in a neural network and having a computer combined based on three important factors.

WHAT IS SPEEDGATE, THE FIRST SPORT CREATED BY A.I.?
By analyzing 400 sports, an A.I. was able to create his own original game for the first time.
Speedgate, as it is called, combines rugby, lacrosse and more to create a unique, fast experience.
Players score by kicking a ball through one of three gates.
However, do not stay too long. Players may only hold the ball on time for three seconds.
The final product comes after sorting and finally testing thousands of different formats.
AKQA design agency has released the rules and parameters on its website and has actively encouraged players to start their own competitions.
Researchers say they wanted the end product to be easy to learn, accessible to all athletes, and physically attractive, or a & # 39; good workout & # 39; as they put it.
The results of AKQA & # 39; s experiment are a bit like Rugby in combination with Quidditch and then only added a little Lacrosse to the amalgam.
In practice, the game works by placing competitors in a pill-shaped field – two teams of six players each – and then letting them work together to get a ball through three different & # 39; gates & # 39; that are created by parallel messages, pass or kick.
What really stands out in speedgate, however, is in his name.
The ball must move every 3 seconds, otherwise players will receive a penalty, which means a pace that matches the title & # 39; sport & # 39 ;.
Although artificial intelligence has done the grunting to map ideas, rules, parameters and even logos and slogan lines for the sport, it was ultimately up to people to determine what worked and what didn't work.
Speedgate, AKQA says, was selected from three finalists and was the result of human testing and sharpening of the thousands of AI outputs.
In some suggested sports, the official ball was as big as a yoga ball, some were played in a gym, others used rackets, but eventually they ended up on speedgate.
As reported by Fast Company, the outputs were not all created in the same way.
The system also sent out rather pointless suggestions, such as & # 39; blunt horse saw & # 39; which the team described as & # 39; two people sitting on silent horses on either side of a giant tree trunk, rocking back and forth with a saw. & # 39;
Speedgate is meant to offer players some of the best aspects of more than 400 different sports.
According to Engadget, speedgate may be in a starting stage as a sport, but that does not mean that there is no room for a more professional future.
AKQA is currently in talks with the Oregon Sports Authority about setting up intramural competitions and is actively promoting potential players to start their own competitions.
To immerse players in the idea of speedgate, the game even has its own philosophy, also created by the artificially intelligent founder of the game.
& # 39; Look at the ball, be the ball, be above the ball. & # 39;
