Microsoft AI Breaks All-Time High Score On Ms. Pac-Man

June 15, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Business Insider reports that reports that a Microsoft artificial intelligence system has earned a perfect score of 999,000 points on the Atari 2600 version of Ms. Pac-Man. Highscore.com, which tracks high scores in the competitive classic-arcade gaming scene, confirmed the new. This shatters the previous record for the game, which was 266,330. That score was achieved by a player in Brazil. The footage can be seen below and also includes the game resetting when the score is hit.

The AI was created by Maluuba, a startup company that Microsoft acquired in January. Maluuba decided to use this version of the gme because AI researchers have standardized using the console to compare results and methods. Microsoft has said that the technology used to help beat the game could be used in the future to help salespeople find out the right leads to contact.
