What is SIMA?

Unlike traditional AI-controlled characters (NPCs), Google’s SIMA is a “generalist AI agent” designed to play 3D video games. It’s not programmed for specific games or actions but follows verbal commands from human players.

How Does SIMA Work?

SIMA uses images from the game environment and natural language instructions to navigate, interact with objects, and perform tasks. It’s been trained on nine different games, including No Man’s Sky and Goat Simulator 3.

Benefits of SIMA

  • Can provide companionship in multiplayer or single-player games.
  • Can assist with repetitive tasks or quests.

Potential Concerns

  • Unfair Advantage: SIMA could be used to gain an unfair advantage in online gameplay.
  • Exploitation: Players could use SIMA to automate tasks, reducing the need for human interaction.

Current Status

SIMA is still under development and not yet ready for widespread use.
