Computer games have belatedly come to the fore as a serious platform for AI research. Through our own experiments in the fields of imitation learning and intelligent agents, it became clear that the lack of a unified, powerful yet intuitive API was a serious impediment to the adoption of commercial games in both research and education. Parallel to our own specialised work, we therefore decided to develop a generalpurpose library for the creation of game agents, in the hope that the availability… 
Pogamut 3 Can Assist Developers in Building AI (Not Only) for Their Videogame Agents
TLDR
Pogamut 3 is an open source platform for rapid development of behaviour for virtual agents embodied in a 3D environment of the Unreal Tournament 2004 videogame and is designed to support research as well as educational projects.
An agent-independent task learning framework
TLDR
By applying agent-independent learning processes to virtual agents of this kind, it is hoped that researchers will be more inclined to consider them on a par with robots as tools for learning research.
Clustering Game Behavior Data
TLDR
A review and tutorial focusing on the application of clustering techniques to mine behavioral game data and topics such as feature normalization are discussed and open problems in the context of game analytics are pointed out.

Human-Level AI's Killer Application: Interactive Computer Games
TLDR
It is suggested that interactive computer games provide a rich environment for incremental research on human-level AI and the research issues and AI techniques that are relevant to each of these roles.
Computer Games - Boon or Bane for AI Research?
TLDR
My opinion is that points of view can rarely be advanced by harmonious speeches accompanied by general nodding, and algorithm design must take place in a holistic view of the complete set of target features, and not for single properties in isolation.
Learning Human-Like Movement Behavior for Computer Games
TLDR
This work proposes an approach for learning strategies by observation of human players, principally viewing the design of a computer game agent as a problem of pattern recognition.
Learning Human-Like Opponent Behavior for Interactive Computer Games
TLDR
It is shown that neural networks architectures are well suited to leam such functions and by means of a popular commercial game it is demonstrated that agent behaviors can be learned from observation.
Applying Markov decision processes to 2D real time games
TLDR
This paper describes the process of applying Markov decision processes (MDPs) using the value iteration algorithm to a 2D real time computer game and introduces a new stopping criterion for value iteration.
Gamebots: A 3D Virtual World Test-Bed For Multi-Agent Research
TLDR
The Gamebots system provides a built-in scripting language giving interested researchers the ability to create their own multi-agent tasks and environments for the simulation.

TIELT: A Testbed for Gaming Environments
TLDR
The late Alpha version of TIELT is demonstrated, a testbed designed to fill the needs of AI researchers to test the utility of their systems in complex task environments defined by gaming simulators and/or simulators of computer-generated forces.

TLDR
This work presents a data-driven method for deriving perceptual-motor action and behavior primitives from human motion capture data using a spatio-temporal non-linear dimension reduction technique on a set of motion segments.
Using the Triangle Inequality to Accelerate k-Means
TLDR
The accelerated k-means algorithm is shown how to accelerate dramatically, while still always computing exactly the same result as the standard algorithm, and is effective for datasets with up to 1000 dimensions, and becomes more and more effective as the number k of clusters increases.
