New gaming section
« on: July 03, 2014, 01:50:01 pm »
I have expanded the Virtual World area to include gaming as I feel we are missing out on a major area where some form of AI gets used a lot.

The general idea is to talk about how AI is used in games and examples of it in action. Also things like Virtual Reality will play a part too in keeping with that board.

I made the first post there about the Aliens game because Oculus Rift is a relatively new way to enjoy gaming immersively and I think it's on our virtual reality radar.

But other clever things come to mind too - like intelligent non player characters, path finding and perhaps physics. You get the idea I am sure.

Well I hope people will find this a good idea. Any comments are welcomed. :)

Brilliant idea Freddy, there is much more to AI than holding a conversation and we are seeing it more and more in some of the latest games.

My only concern is whenever I go to post what I think is a good example of AI in games that there tends to be the use of guns or bad language and I know that some of our members can be a little shy (for want of a better word) to these things. Finding good examples might be a bit tricky because of that. Well with the games I play anyway  ;D

Just add a comment warning if there is bad language, that should do.
