AI Generates Unending Super Mario Bros. Levels with Just a Few Words

Super Mario Bros. is one of the most iconic video games of all time, and now it has been given a new twist with an AI-powered text to level generator called Mariogpt. Developed by researchers at the University of Tübingen in Germany, Mariogpt uses natural language processing (NLP) technology to generate levels for Super Mario Bros. that are playable on the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

The team behind Mariogpt used a generative pre-trained transformer (GPT) model to create their AI system. GPT models are based on deep learning algorithms which allow them to learn from large amounts of data and then generate new content based on what they have learned. In this case, the team trained their GPT model using over 10 million lines of code from Super Mario Bros., allowing it to understand how levels were constructed in the game and how different elements interacted with each other.

Once trained, Mariogpt was able to generate its own levels for Super Mario Bros., complete with enemies, powerups, coins and more! The generated levels can be played directly on an NES emulator or exported as ROM files so they can be shared online or even played on real hardware via flash carts like Everdrive N8 Pro or PowerPak+.

Mariogpt’s creators say that while their AI system isn’t perfect yet – some generated levels may contain impossible jumps or dead ends – it still offers players a unique way to experience classic games like Super Mario Bros.. It also provides developers with a powerful tool for quickly prototyping ideas without having to write any code themselves; something which could prove invaluable when creating modern indie titles inspired by retro classics such as Super Mario Bros..

What makes Mariogpt truly remarkable though is just how far artificial intelligence has come since its inception decades ago. While early attempts at creating intelligent machines focused mainly on solving mathematical problems or playing board games such as chess and Go, today’s AIs are capable of much more complex tasks including generating entire video game worlds! This opens up exciting possibilities not only for gamers but also for developers who want to explore new ways of creating interactive experiences without having to spend hours coding every single element manually.

Mariogpt is certainly an impressive achievement both technologically speaking and in terms of providing gamers with fresh ways enjoy classic titles like Super Mario Bros.. As machine learning continues advancing at breakneck speed we can expect many more innovative applications being developed in future years; ones which will no doubt continue pushing boundaries within gaming industry even further than before!
