ΑΙ and Games: The Co-Revolution

Subdisciplinary Area: AI and Games

Keywords: Procedural content generation, player modeling, computational creativity, affective computing, game-based learning

Abstract: This talk focuses on the wonderful and long-term relationship between games and AI and the impact such a relationship has had on our lives. Games have been a core driving force for the revolution of AI which, in turn, has reframed our culture, and reshaped our society at large. While games have been assisting AI since its birth it is only very recently that we experience a strong inverse relationship: AI nowadays designs exciting games for us to play and for AI to advance further. While games are arguably one of the last frontiers for AI, AI is also the next great leap forward for games.
