  1. Genetic Programming in Games

    This free e-book may interest you: [url=""]Evolved to Win[/url] (2011; 193 pages) [quote]Title: [b]Evolved to Win[/b] Author: Moshe Sipper Abstract: Recent years have seen a sharp increase in the application of evolutionary computation techniques within the domain of games. Situated at the forefront of this research tidal wave, Moshe Sipper and his group have produced a plethora of award-winning results, in numerous games of diverse natures, evidencing the success and efficiency of evolutionary algorithms in general—and genetic programming in particular—at producing top-notch, human-competitive game strategies. From classic chess and checkers, through simulated car racing and virtual warfare, to mind-bending puzzles, this book serves both as a tour de force of the research landscape and as a guide to the application of evolutionary computation within the domain of games.[/quote] But it doesn't directly deal with modern games.
  2. Creating my second game AI

    Although it is not a board game, you may want to check out the [url=""]Pac-Man Projects[/url] which Stanford CS 221[i] Intro to AI[/i] class' (= on-campus version of the Stanford AI course online you attended) [url=""]programming assignments[/url] were based on.
  3. MIT launches online learning initiative MITx will offer courses online and make online learning tools freely available.
  4. Beginning Fuzzy logic?

    [quote name='newbie_gamer' timestamp='1324741057' post='4897082'] Also I want to know how tough is it to implement fuzzy logic.. After understanding the theory can it be done within a month.. I'm running on a tight schedule here!! [/quote] Pretty straightforward. Check out the book entitled "Programming Game AI by Example". Chapter 10 on Fuzzy Logic has many code examples (C++). There are also many fuzzy logic libraries available.
