    And how many monkeys did you need to type that sentence?

    Seth didn't name the bot, his Twitch chat did.

    The bot is impressive, but I liken it to finding the one monkey who accidentally typed out the works of Shakespeare. The AI can't tell the difference between good sprites (like pickups) and bad sprites (like enemies), and it also can't tell the difference between different sprites. That means that if it gets a mushroom, it does it by random chance, and if it kills an enemy, it also does that by random chance. It's a fantastic chance to learn about neural networking, but I doubt it will ever get to a point where it can complete any level based only on what it has learnt about previous levels.
