Dave Mark GDC/GameX Lecture Slides

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Lost in all my annoyance at the old blog issues, I never mentioned that I have created a page to hold the slides from my lectures in the past. These include:

2009 GDC AI Summit
Breaking the Cookie-Cutter: Modeling Individual Personality, Mood, and Emotion in Characters

2009 GDC Austin
Cover Me!: Promoting MMO Player Interaction through Advanced AI

2009 GameX Industry Summit
The Art of Game AI: Sculpting Behavior with Data, Formulas, and Finesse

2010 GDC AI Summit
Improving AI Decision Modeling Through Utility Theory
AI Devs Rant!

Some of these were joint lectures but only contain my content. The exceptions are the GameX one and the Utility Theory lecture. Both of those were joint with Kevin Dill. I have permission to use his content (as he does with mine).

I will continue to update that page as I do other lectures in the future.

Back from GDC — Possible New News

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Laurie and Dave arrived back from San Francisco early Monday morning. (Gotta love delayed flights… someone should make a game about that!) The week was an adventure for sure. You can read more about the AI portions of it over at IA on AI.

There may be a shift in direction (and momentum) for Airline Traffic Manager coming up. We are going to be doing some experimentation with a new approach for the client development. The current MFC-based client was our bottleneck for development and it was meant to be a throw-away interface anyway. Changing this direction on things may be just what we need to spring-board ATM’s progress forward.

Additionally, we may have decided on the route we are taking for distribution eventually. We need to investigate more. Check back for details! (Remember to subscribe to this blog for news updates as they happen.)

GDC for the week

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

Dave and Laurie are in San Francisco this week for the Game Developers Conference. One of the major events this week is the AI Summit at which Dave is giving and sitting on a panel. Of course, the debut of Dave’s book, “Behavioral Mathematics for Game AI” on the Expo floor will be a nice touch as well.

Keep an eye here and on the sister blog, IA on AI, for updates and observations from the show. It should be a heckuva week!
