It was clear they had downloaded sharp-shooting bots to play the game for them, says Excell. Aric also noticed that some players were unusually quick to attack their opponents, suggesting that they were using a known cheat that made walls in the game transparent.”  It seems that a human would also be able to detect something is wrong, and this program is doing what a human could figure out.  What other applications might you use this software in?
