Development of AI for Call of Duty: Ghosts is taking longer than the game's graphics because Infinity Ward has yet to receive finalized versions of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hardware, executive producer Mark Rubin told Official PlayStation Magazine.

Rubin said work on AI is "slower than some of the graphics" because the studio lacks the final hardware, noting the delay has caused Infinity Ward to be more cautious with the scope of the game at this point in time.

"Obviously we are in crazy early development and we will have to see how the consoles play out," Rubin said.

According to Rubin, AI enemies in Ghosts will react differently to certain events in the environment, as well as other dynamic instances such as Riley attacking.

"They might behave differently to the dog, or behave a little differently compared to the events that are happening in the level," Rubin said. "They take some of the environment cues and pay attention to them. A lot of times they just kind of ignore the environment, they are just like,

Personally I found the AI of multi player to be more of a problem.

It really just sounds like their previous AI was very scripted and they're trying to give it a more believable feel.  Having played Black Ops 2 on PC I really can't vouch for its AI.  It saw you, it shot you.  That was pretty much it.

 

AI improvements should be awesome going to next gen, but only when devs choose to do anything with it.

 

As to the cloud trolling this is multiplatform, not Xbox One.
