Computer games now form an important sector of the computing and entertainment industries, but the need for better artificial intelligence in games is deeply felt and recognised by the industry. Conversely, games offer new challenges and excellent application domains for AI technology and research. Games are increasingly used for education, serious games or game-based learning, where AI techniques can create a believable, engaging experience for learners. The AI & Games Symposium focuses on the application of artificial intelligence techniques, frameworks and theories to the creation of engaging intelligent games, and will address the following areas of research and practice:

  • The use of AI techniques (planning, learning, evolution etc.) in games and the game design process.
  • The design and engineering of AI components in commercial games
  • Automatic or semi-automatic procedural content generation
  • AI for serious games and gamification.
  • Intelligent or adaptive player interaction
  • AI for player analytics and modelling player behaviour or experience.
  • Agent pathfinding and decision-making in games
  • Using games or simulations as a platform for building intelligent agents
  • Environmental simulations for games
  • Interactive narrative generation
  • Player perceptions of game AI
