A brand new poker-playing bot was developed by the same group of researchers who presented Libratus back in 2017, and this time, it had successfully defeated a team of top poker players in a 6-handed NLHE game.
Facebook worked with researchers from the Carnegie Mellon University spearheaded by CMU professor Tuomas Sandholm and his graduate student Noam Brown, who scheduled a showdown featuring the latest version of the AI poker supercomputer called "Pluribus" versus some of the top poker players in the industry, and the results, published earlier this month in the journal Science, were remarkable. The bot managed to beat down its opponents, something no other AI before has achieved (previous AI programs can only win at a two-player poker game). It is expected that the outcome of this project shall have major implications on AI research and the game of poker itself.
