One of the latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) developments, Game AI, mimics human ability to learn from experience and has become famous for achieving superhuman performance in sophisticated games such as Chess, Go and Poker. 

White Space Energy delivers step changes in decision speed and quality by translating complex business problems in Games and analysing these with the latest AI.

This is done in two ways:

  • Consulting service: the bespoke Game and AI engine run on White Space Energy’s computers
  • Sustainable product: the Game AI is integrated into a full-stack application.

In both cases, the client’s data and other applications are integrated.
