Session Name Robocalypse Now: Using Deep Learning to Combat Cheating in 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive'
Speaker(s) John McDonald
Company Name(s) Valve
Track / Format Programming
Overview In this session, John will discuss how Valve has utilized Deep Learning to combat cheating in 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive'. He will give total system details, from the high level server architecture to the low level features fed into the AI. Deep Learning has proven to be very effective at identifying cheating behavior without any client-side instrumentation, making it robust against malicious attack by cheaters and cheat vendors. By retraining regularly, the network continues to evolve, picking up new cheating behaviors within hours of their appearance. As a result of this approach, certain types of cheats have been reduced by a factor of one hundred.
