A bot that plays Mario

So IEEE sponsored a competition in which people must create an AI that can play Infinite Mario Bros, a Java based version of Super Mario World created by Markus Persson that keeps randomly generating the level ad infinitum. The deadline is set for August 18th(ICE-CIG) and September 3rd(CIG).

So making a bot that can perform boring or repetitive tasks is easy and has been done, but developing an AI that can read new information and perform tasks according to this new information intelligently is much more difficult. But it looks like one guy has created one. His Mario bot plays through a level as shown below. It looks pretty awesome and rivals the custom Super Mario Music Video, shown second, though the music video still wins out due to complexity and huge amount of effort put into it.
