I have just delved into the realm of AI and from what I can tell its a very vast field of study. I am a game programmer, so AI in games is particularly interesting to me. My question is, what type of AI would a bot that can beat 2048 fall under?
I learned the basics of machine learning, but I wasn't sure if this is how you could apply machine learning. I want to know what category this falls under so I know what to research and learn to make my own bot. Also, if you don't know what 2048 is, check it out here.
