Last week, we showed you Seth Bling’s MarI/O neural network mastering Super Mario World. Now it’s taken on Mario Kart and got good at racing depressingly quickly, with the help of a modified script by Winterbunny:

MarI/O managed to finish 2nd place in a 50cc race! Let’s go for first!

Just as it did with Super Mario World, MarI/O attacks Mario Kart via a process of trial and error, learning how to navigate the track and deal with other racers, power-ups and pitfalls. While we were watching it nailed 1st place.

There’s also an entire Twitch channel dedicated to watching the AI working on its Mario chops.
