AI and ML for Games

From detecting fraud and predicting player behavior, to automating speech recognition and playtesting, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) makes games smarter and development faster.

Build intelligent game experiences

Build faster

With 10X better-performing algorithms and 2X the performance compared to other cloud providers, AWS Machine Learning is focused on solving some of the toughest challenges facing game developers today.

Operate your game smarter

Build, train, and deploy ML models fast so you spend more time making predictions on player behavior and taking action to engage and delight players.

Create new experiences

Augment your game with artificial intelligence that help you build better, more immersive experiences for your players in a shorter period of time.

    Real-time sentiment monitoring

    Monitor the sentiment of a Twitch chat in real time with Amazon Comprehend.

    Understanding the sentiment of your player base is key in responding to feedback and building a game players want to play. Let’s say you’re getting ready to launch a risky new feature that you plan to test in a subset of channels. You have a good metric to optimize with an A/B test, but it’s a lagging indicator and you need to be able to roll back quickly if players get frustrated. 

    To reduce the risk, you build an application that monitors the sentiment of Twitch chats in real time. Then, you write a chat client that measures the sentiment of every message with Amazon Comprehend. The average sentiment by minute is displayed in an Amazon CloudWatch dashboard, so you can rest easy when your new feature goes live.

    The concepts covered in this workshop can be applied to other data source like text chat, discussion boards, and other social media channels.
