      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

What is the difference between artificial intelligence versus normal intelligence

126 posts in this topic

? After all, it is the human that is making the artificial intelligent device. Much like how a man and a woman created you. They were intelligent before you came along. So should you, therefore, be considered to be artificially intelligent? [Edited by - headfonez on March 23, 2006 12:04:57 PM]

I agree. Let's allow unmanned ships to participate in swimming competitions, since what is the difference between natural and artificial swimming?

Oh, and should this thread be closed because the question has nothing to do with game development?

I think that your question is kind of flawed. You create artificial intelligence to make computers do things humans are good at. For example humans are good at pattern matching, but computers are not. Thus one problem in AI is how to make a computer match patterns.

The reason it's artificial is becaues the computer is doing it and not you.

If an animal did it would it be artificial intelligence?

Goodness. It's almost as though "Whether you were created by a human" is not a sufficient discriminator between artificial intelligence and "real intelligence". Who'da thunk it?

Yeah but to make it fair lets make all the unmanned ships swim against other unmanned ships. You know, like how professional athletes cant play in the little leagues?

Here's how your argument seems to be laid out.

1. Something is artificially intelligent if it was created by humans.
2. People are created by humans.
A. By 1 and 2, people are artificially intelligent.

However, you haven't provided any support for premise 1. Your argument seems to rest on an ambiguity of definition.

Perhaps AI should stand for "Automated Intelligence" so it does not confuse non-programmers so much...

Premise 1 = anything created is intelligent, and of course, levels of intelligence varies

OK but that does not mean "Artificially Intelligent".

Also what about bread? I make bread, therefore bread is intelligent?

Yes, but who engineered humans(as opposed to ai-driven comps.)
(It may be easy to prove concepts other than in science tend not to have a clear demarcation line...but we may agree there are also things that fall into one category or the other..bread is definitely not intelligent nowadays)

OTOH we lack the definition for AI(I guess it is a nebula but the main stream is emulating human reactions in as many situations as possible)
The emulation should have ben engineered by another intelligence(except from God, this is debatable
;



To explain why is it possible to have a concept hard to define it is easy to just say concept are (mainly) the essence of a group of representants.

e.g. we say inanimate things are dumb, plants are as close as possible in this respect, animals tend to have intelligence, but definitely man posesses it.
and there are degrees by which we measure an item, helpful to further strengthen the concept:e.g.Einstein was a genious as opposed to some retard on the street.
Many other aspects concur(?) to create the concept.The end result is a comprehensible concept, but eludes nevertheless our ability to create a strict definition.(or maybe somewone did make a better job.anyway, think AI as a concept in these terms)


Conclusion we may find a concept hard to define (attempts exists see above) but it is a concept in every respect

Another fallacy of definition. You can't define something as intelligent but not having any intelligence.

Well, we could keep it simple and say: "Any thing that is considered intelligent that is not also considered human is defined to have artificial intelligence." Of course, the criteria for determining intelligence and humanity need to also be supplied, but are irrelevent to the natural versus artificial intelligence issue.
