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… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
Using a Computer Game to Develop Advanced AI
TLDR
The Quakebot uses Soar-an engine for making and executing decisions-as its underlying AI engine for controlling a single player. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Quagents: A Game Platform for Intelligent Agents
TLDR
This work describes the Quagent architecture and research and teaching applications and describes the communications protocol between the controller and the bot, which resembles that between the high-level software and low-level controller of a mobile robot. Expand
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. Expand
Research Directions for AI in Computer Games
TLDR
This paper will examine how sophisticated AI techniques, such as those being used in mainstream academic research, can be applied to computer games and introduce three projects doing just that. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Learning by imitation: a hierarchical approach.
TLDR
It is argued that most of the alternatives to imitation that have been proposed can be subsumed under a single process, priming, in which input increases the activation of stored internal representations. Expand
