prostheticknowledge:Social Mario AI Project from University of Tübingen implements social awareness with artificial intellenge in the Mario gameworld, allowing characters to learn from each other:While artificial intelligence has made tremendous progress in the field of computer gaming, artificial social intelligence is frequently no more than a marginal feature in the shadow of theoretical applications,” says doctoral candidate Fabian Schrodt, one of the main developers on the team. One of the researchers’ main goals is to make artificial social intelligence easier to use for teaching in schools and universities -and to bring new ideas not only to the current development of computer games, but also into the field of human-machine interaction and driving assistance.LinkArticle on the Ars Electronica blog by Martin Hieslmair about Russian media art from the 1960s:http://www.aec.at/aeblog/en/2016/01/22/crystall/
The NYPL has a ton of public domain materials they would like to share with aspiring game designers. Mauricio Geraldo, one of the designers in the NYPL labs, made the game Mansion Maniac,in which you control Pac-Man-esque, pixelated character, wandering through real, early-century floor plans of New York City homes and apartments. The game automatically generates more historical layouts as you go, and when you’re done you can save and print out the floorplan.Check out more of the public domain materials here:http://www.nypl.org/research/collections/digital-collections/public-domainRead Motherboard’s overview of Geraldo’s game and more about the public domain collection here:(via The New York Public Library Hopes You’ll Make Video Games)prostheticknowledge:Social Mario AI Project from University of Tübingen implements social awareness with artificial intellenge in the Mario gameworld, allowing characters to learn from each other:While artificial intelligence has made tremendous progress in the field of computer gaming, artificial social intelligence is frequently no more than a marginal feature in the shadow of theoretical applications,” says doctoral candidate Fabian Schrodt, one of the main developers on the team.
