Games in Full SAILS: Technical Game Research and the New LIACS Games Lab
What is technical game research, and why should we care about it? Game environments are among the most popular and interactive test cases for all kinds of new AI algorithms. Not only did they help forge the AI hype we currently experience, they continue to fuel technological improvements that benefit future AI research. Additionally, (serious) games are increasingly used as research tools; whether to engage participants, or to collect data on a wider scale. On a commercial level, games continue to attract larger audiences that rival other forms of entertainment, such as film or sports. More importantly, the experiences they provide are becoming more diverse, involving trends such as increased 'open-worldness', hybrid gaming, and procedural content generation.
In this talk, we provide an overview of who we are, where we are, what we do, which interesting courses we provide, and how we want to collaborate with you.
