Planning in video games seminar at Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Summer Scholl (HAISS-2011)

Earlier today I gave a seminar about planning and possible applications in video games in the 2nd Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Summer School (HAISS-2011) that was organized by the Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society (EETN) and the Technoesis network of  the University of Patras, in Patras, Greece.

The slides of my talk (in Greek) can be found  here and the PDDL files mentioned in the talk can be found here. The planner used for the demo is BlackBox which can be found here (for windows use this executable and install the Cygwin DLL or make sure that cygwin1.dll is at the same folder as the BlackBox executable).

The abstract of the talk follows (in Greek).

Πρώτο μέρος: Εισαγωγή στην αναπαράσταση προβλημάτων σχεδιασμού (planning) με βάση τη γλώσσα STRIPS. Προέλαση, οπισθοχώρηση, και ευρετικές συναρτήσεις για την εύρεση λύσης σε προβλήματα σχεδιασμού με βάση την αναζήτηση. Αναπαράσταση προβλημάτων σχεδιασμού στην τυπική γλώσσα PDDL και χρήση του planner BlackBox για την επίλυση προβλημάτων σχεδιασμού στο πεδίο του puzzle game Sokoban.

Δεύτερο μέρος: Εισαγωγή στην ανάπτυξη τεχνητής νοημοσύνης για χαρακτήρες (non-player characters) σε video games και εφαρμογές τεχνικών σχεδιασμού σε εμπορικά video games. Αναπαράσταση των βασικών στοιχείων ενός First-Person Shooter game σε PDDL από την οπτική ενός αντίπαλου χαρακτήρα στον κόσμο του παιχνιδιού, και χρήση του planner BlackBox για την επίλυση προβλημάτων σχεδιασμού που σχετίζονται με τις επιλογές του χαρακτήρα στο παιχνίδι. Σύντομος σχολιασμός επιπλέον τεχνικών όπως η παρακολούθηση εκτέλεσης και ο επανασχεδιασμός.

    I want to show my thanks to this wrtier for bailing me out of such a crisis. Just after looking out throughout the world wide web and meeting ideas which were not powerful, I figured my entire life was done. Being alive without the solutions to the difficulties you’ve fixed as a result of your blog post is a critical case, and the kind that could have adversely damaged my career if I had not discovered your site. Your own personal competence and kindness in controlling almost everything was useful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a solution like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the specialized and effective guide. I won’t think twice to refer your web blog to any individual who would need guidance on this matter.

    the best system particularly if you follow all the guidelines

    An addiction to sports gambling is rather similar to any other kind of addiction as the addiction begins to take charge and control your life.
    If you think you’ve forgotten some of the rules, it would not hurt to take a glance of the rules and instructions.

    makes him feel weak and angry.
