An Evening of Game A.I.

On Thursday I’m off to An Evening of Game AI. Now, what I know about writing modern games can be written on the back of a postage stamp. What I am is a consumer of games. And a fussy one at that. So why an evening of Game AI? Well first off its a subject that I think I’ll find interesting. Even if I never out the knowledge gained into practice I’m liable to walk away thinking “that was cool”. I’m a geek; shoot me. More importantly is the concept of Gameification [hideous word] and how I might apply game AI techniques into a business context. The ideas I have a very embryonic at the moment and it may be that they’re pie in the sky, but hopefully Thursday will prove useful and give me an idea of what directions I should be looking in.
