The “Texas Hold’em Heads Up Game” is a computer that plays against humans in an arcade style poker game.
AI: The computer acquires its knowledge “neural net technology”. A neural net, or, more properly, an “artificial neural network”, is a programming technique that is based on the structure of a biological brain that adapts the pathways of information flow through the system based upon positive results. A neural net can be set up to continually learn and improve its strategies over time. (This is machine learning)
The algorithm used in this game is not a perfect algorithm, where it can win every time, but because it can learn based off different situations it comes across in other games, it is able to learn as it plays.
