Is Skynet set to be the Evo 2018 champion? It doesn’t seem likely, given the human aspects of playing fighting games, but one group — Gyroscope Software — is looking into what it would take to program a bot to play at the highest levels of Street Fighter.

In this technical article from Medium.com, they discuss the process they went through to develop the bot and teach it how to play the game. While it has yet to take on any true world warriors, the challenge is open for players to test their mettle against the bot in Street Fighter II Turbo.
