Researchers from the University of Copenhagen have developed MarioGPT, an AI tool that is capable of creating classic Super Mario Bros. levels using text prompts. The tool utilizes a fine-tuned GPT2 model to generate side-scrolling level layouts based on classic Super Mario Bros. stages.
The researchers have released MarioGPT on GitHub, but it requires some technical expertise to operate. Nonetheless, it is an excellent demonstration of the possibilities for AI-driven innovation.
While the use of AI-generated content raises ethical and copyright questions, the development of MarioGPT offers exciting possibilities for AI-assisted creativity. This AI tool serves as a reminder of the ever-increasing potential of AI technology to transform a wide range of industries.
