Special Track Game AI at IEA/AIE 2017, June 27-30, 2017 Arras (near Paris, France)


Among numerous possibles applications of Artificial Intelligence, games are convenient and efficient testbeds to develop innovating techniques and methods. By games, we mean every game playable through a computer: video games, board games, serious games, etc.

Behind the fun side, games propose a simplified environment regarding to the real world, while remaining rich enough to also propose scientifically pertinent problems: understanding of a dynamic environment, knowledge extraction, decision-making upon incomplete information, planning, cooperation, learning or mimicking credible behaviors, optimization, path-finding, etc.

Many of these problems are common to others research fields such as robotics, but games offer a greater flexibility: thanks to their dematerialized nature, these environments are inexpensive, transportable, need no physical maintenance and propose a highly controllable time flow (accelerated, paused, etc).


Topics of interest for this special track on Game AI include, but are not limited to:
