AI Technology: Predicting Our Next Move?
Our eyes are often indicators of our actions, signalling to others which way we’ll walk or where we’ll kick a ball. In the past, digital games lacked these nonverbal signals. However, the increased availability of eye trackers, connectable to laptops and VR headsets, may change this. But what if this technology was combined with AI to predict our next moves in games? Researchers at the University of Melbourne put AI eye-tracking to the test, finding that intention prediction technology that used eye-tracking was more accurate than technology without it. Tim Miller, Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Melbourne, one of the experts involved in this research, joined us on the line to discuss this further.
