The first instance of AI/Machine Learning (ML) that I came across was Salty’s Dream Cast Casino on Twitch.  This channel and it’s accompanying website SaltyBet allows viewers to earn fake currency  to bet on fighting game matches.  The matches are unique in that they’re powered by the M.U.G.E.N engine that allows importing of assets from various fighting games (such as characters and background locations) and let the engines AI battle it out.  This channels been running 24/7 since it’s creation back which looks to be in 2013.
