More than a decade after the early research efforts on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in computer games and the establishment of a new AI domain the term ``game AI'' needs to be redefined. Traditionally, the tasks associated with game AI revolved around non player character (NPC) behavior at different levels of control, varying from navigation and pathfinding to decision making. Commercial-standard games developed over the last 15 years and current game productions, however, suggest… Expand
From Chess and Atari to StarCraft and Beyond: How Game AI is Driving the World of AI
TLDR
The algorithms and methods that have paved the way for these breakthroughs are reviewed, including that advances in Game AI are starting to be extended to areas outside of games, such as robotics or the synthesis of chemicals. Expand
A Panorama of Artificial and Computational Intelligence in Games
This paper attempts to give a high-level overview of the field of artificial and computational intelligence (AI/CI) in games, with particular reference to how the different core research areas withinExpand
When Are We Done with Games?
TLDR
It is concluded that Dota 2 and StarCraft II are not yet mastered by AI as they so far only have been able to win against top professionals in limited competition structures in restricted variants of the games. Expand
AI for game production
TLDR
A confluence of four major forces at play in the games industry today, together producing a wealth of data that opens unique research opportunities and challenges for Game AI in game production is characterized. Expand
Horizontal Scaling With a Framework for Providing AI Solutions Within a Game Company
TLDR
This paper looks beyond the video games themselves to the application of AI techniques within the ecosystems that produce them, and EA has been delivering a wide range of AI solutions throughout the company during the last two years. Expand
General general game AI
TLDR
This paper builds on the general game-playing paradigm and expands it to cater for all core AI tasks within a game design process, including general player experience and behavior modeling, general non-player character behavior, general AI-assisted tools, general level generation and complete game generation. Expand
The Case for Usable AI: What Industry Professionals Make of Academic AI in Video Games
TLDR
While academic (games) AI research tends to focus on problem-solving capacity, industry professionals highlight the importance of "usability aspects of AI'': the ability to produce plausible outputs, computational performance and ease of implementation. Expand
Teaming up with Artificial Intelligence: The Human in the Loop of Serious Game Pathfinding Algorithms
TLDR
In the present study, pathfinding algorithms with and without human interventions to the algorithms are investigated, finding some evidence that in this particular pathfinding problem human interventions result in superior results as the MAXMIN Ant System algorithm. Expand
Special Issue on Computational Aesthetics in Games
A GENT-BASED artificial intelligence (AI) research, traditionally, seeks to optimize the performance of artificial agents in their given domains. In the area of games, however, this does not meanExpand
NPC AI System Based on Gameplay Recordings
A well optimized Non-Player Character (NPC) as an opponent or a teammate is a major part of the multiplayer games. Most of the game bots are built upon a rigid system with numbered decisions andExpand
