IA on AI

My GDC Schedule

This is my tentative schedule for GDC. I’m kind of annoyed that many of my sessions overlap. I suppose that’s one of the main reasons why I bring Laurie so she can go to the business and legal ones. However, I hate having to choose between the ones on AI and agile development, for example. Heck… I haven’t even checked on the keynotes like the one from Ray Kurzweil. Usually those don’t conflict with other things too much, though.

Obviously, you can click on the links to learn more about the sessions and/or the people.

My week will also include:

Tuesday night: IGDA party
Wednesday night: Booth crawl & Game Developers Choice Awards
Thursday night: Author’s party for my publisher (see sidebar for link to AI Wisdom 4)
Friday night: AI Programmers Dinner and possibly Video Games Live

    Why does it no longer say that Richard Evans will be a speaker at the GDC this year?

    It’s no where on the site.
    I was uber excited….

  2. Dave Mark says:

    Wow… no kidding. Was he really supposed to speak there? I don’t remember seeing it.

    I noticed a lot of changes to the program over the past few months, though.

  3. faith says:

    Yes, he used to be on the site.
    Now he is no where to be found.
    I was looking forward to hearing about TS3.

    He was on it until a week ago.

    This so sucks.
