AI and Computer Games

Updated: Feb 28, 2022

🚀💡 Today we are launching our #didyouknow series of informative posts related to #AI and/or #robotics contributed by our core team members of Women in AI & Robotics. 🤔

🕹 Playing computer #games is fun, but did you know that there is a whole research area about Artificial Intelligence and Games? 🎮

🔼 AI can play the game:

Games are hard and interesting problems that offer different AI challenges. You've probably heard of the AI success in #Chess and Go, which are deterministic, turn-based games with perfect information. The research frontier lies in non-deterministic, real-time games with imperfect information.💡

🔽 AI can be used to model player experience. The aim of this is to:

◽ better understand player experience/behaviour

◽ assist designers and players

◽ increase the engagement with the game

◽ improve player experience

▶️ Player experience is seen as the holy grail in game design and development because the perfect game is tailored to the player, learning from the player what is experienced as #fun.

◀️ AI can support game design

Games are content-intensive. But this content needs to be created, too. The virtual worlds must be vast, diversified and interesting so that players don't get bored. #deeplearning can be used for procedural content generation.

🏞 An example of AI-assisted generation of landscapes with hills and trees can be seen in this game jam project:

That's super mesmerizing to watch, isn't it?
