    Another good episode, thank you, well done.

    I was particularly interested in the neural ai discussion. I imagine, on the whole, if it is pre-generated ai, that it will at least improve the nuance of ai, how they move on the track, and the options that are available to them, even if it still means their full set of options is limited.

    Can't wait for ai that actually thinks on-track, though.

    Thanks for another enjoyable episode, had to catch up on a few recently so a bit late but thanks for adding bookmarks, means I can skip the boring F1 chat ;)

    The neural ai discussion was good, I think there's a lot more to AI than we even think so the future is looking good, I hope this takes off in some respect. Strange that you didn't mention iracing ai update later this year, not sure what direction they're going in but I bet its the same as current sims and not neural in any way.

    Hey Marc,

    Tested it out at the expo last year (very, very early build) and speak with the iRacing guys over the months - their version will be the "standard" AI same as the other sims. I'm sure, when release time is either very close or just passed, we will pick that up on the nearest podcast.

    Cheers!
