The teenager created an AI to search for cheaters in Counter-Strike: GO and has already banned 15 thousand players

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, like other shooters on the PC, can not boast of the lack of cheaters. Valve is fighting though

with violators, but the "crooks" continue to regularly wedge themselves into the game of honest gamers. The Steam user with the nickname 2Eggs got it, and he decided to take matters into his own hands.

What is known

The guy decided to reduce the number of cheaters in CS: GO banal catch of violators. Nevertheless, for this he chose a non-standard method. 2Eggs created HestiaNet - an artificial intelligence system that can distinguish cheaters from honest players. To ensure that the system was not mistaken, the developer “fed” it with game data collected since 2015, and every day HestiaNet is becoming smarter.

As The Loadout notes, this is not the onlyprogram that helps to catch cheaters. For example, VACNet and FACEIT monitor the cleanliness of servers, but HestiaNet emphasizes that the platform was created by one teenager from the UK.

“What interested me in this wasA demonstration that John MacDonald [Valve Senior Programmer] held at the GDC in 2018. After that, I wanted to see if I could do something like that, but I will be one of those who will make tougher decisions about who is cheating and who is not. I brought my work to an acceptable state only this year, ”2Eggs said.

HestiaNet was named after the goddess Hestia, whopossessed healing power and was considered the guardian of the family hearth and sacrificial fire. The developer explained that for him, cheaters are a CS: GO disease that needs to be cured.

“I want HestiaNet to cure infected people.”games, saving them from as many cheaters as possible. For many of us, CS: GO is a home in the community, and Hestia is also considered the protector of the outbreak, ”2Eggs added.

During the work, HestiaNet reviewed 17,659cases, 15 104 of which ended in bans. The system first looks at the recorded footages, compares them with the database and renders a verdict. Next, HestiaNet marks the user, writes the SteamID and sends the report. If you guessed it, it makes a note and rejoices that it has become smarter.
