Artificial intelligence has just surpassed yet another impressive milestone by inventing a new team sport – and it’s apparently pretty fun.

The new game, which is being called Speedgate, is being hailed as the first sport ever designed by artificial intelligence.

It was developed as a side project by Portland-based innovation agency AKQA. The designers started their labor of love by feeding hundreds of various sports-related rules and phrases into an AI program. Then, they uploaded the rules of 400 different world sports into the program for analysis.

Upon asking the AI to interpret the data, it regurgitated more than a few interesting concepts.

The AKQA designers interpreted 1,000 different ideas and outlines that were drawn out by the program – and while many of them were amusing to imagine, the team says that they wanted the AI to help develop a game that was not only fun and easy to understand, but also active and accessible.

The team eventually narrowed it down to ten possible sports ideas before field-testing three of them – and Speedgate was the winner.
