Youtuber Harrison Kinsley has used an AI tool named GameGAN to recreate a highway stretch from GTA 5. A video showing off the results - named GTA5: GAN Theft Auto - is worth a watch.
Using GameGAN, Kinsley collaborated with developer Daniel Kukieła on this two-month project, which followed a similar idea last year that recreated Pac-Man by watching another AI play through the game.
Neither of the two collaborators came in with much knowledge of GANs, Kinsley told Eurogamer. "It was a lot of trial and error and just small tweaks and seeing if and how they improved. We didn't have much knowledge, so we had a lot of learning to do, and still do."
