SQUARE ENIX AI ACADEMY: AI Workshop for Blackboard Architecture

This workshop aims to have attendees understand the game AI and how the techniques are used in game development. AI is essential to games, but difficult to comprehend and practice only by listening to lectures. The “SQUARE ENIX AI Academy” was a series of five sessions with lectures and hands-on workshops held by the SQUARE ENIX Advanced Technology Division in the summer and autumn of 2014. The sessions included lectures, board game workshops, an AI tool application workshop and a Blackboard workshop. The Blackboard workshop uses the Blackboard as an agent’s inside architecture and communications between agents.

In this workshop for the SIGGRAPH Asia 2015 Symposium on Education, attendees will take a part or observe the hands-on analog activities of the Blackboard workshop, following a lecture by Yoichiro Miyake, the lead researcher of AI from the SQUARE ENIX. Participants will form small groups and engage in the activity designed to teach them a game AI model.

(Participation to the actual hands-on activities is limited to 16 volunteers from the attendees. Other attendees can observe the activities.)

This workshop does not require previous knowledge in game AI.
