Standardization of AI Interfaces

Recommended Posts

******* ** Call for Statements ** ** TOWARD A STANDARDIZATION OF AI INTERFACES ** A Roundtable Discussion of the 2002 Game Developers Conference ** ** Moderated by Alexander Nareyek ** ** San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, CA, USA ** March 19-23, 2002 (specific day to be announced) ******* Standards - a word that is not often heard in the artificial intelligence community! In a field that develops as fast as AI, standards may not have a very long life span, but wouldn''t it be nice to have some anyway? For example, for an interface between the game and artificial intelligence procedures? Programmers could reuse their code more easily and interface AI tools from third-party developers. This would mean higher reliability, higher quality and lower development costs! Also, academic AI research could increase its impact, learning about and focusing on specific computer game requirements. This roundtable discussion is designed to be an open-minded kickoff meeting, bringing together interested people to share their ideas on this topic and develop common ideas on what such standards could look like and how they could be practically implemented. Let''s push game AI development to the next level! --- FORMAT --- In addition to an open discussion, a third of the session will be reserved for prepared mini-statements from major AI developers, AI tool producers and academic AI researchers. The speakers list will be announced soon. --- ATTENDANCE --- Attendance is limited, and if too many people wish to attend, there will be a selection procedure based on submitted statements. So if you wish to attend the roundtable discussion, please send a short statement (up to 200 words, including your name, e-mail address and affiliation) indicating why this topic interests you to: Alexander Nareyek The deadline for submission is January 31, 2002. --- ADDITIONAL INFORMATION --- 2002 Game Developers Conference Homepage: Roundtable Homepage:
