Speaker: Dr. David B. Fogel
Title: Computational Intelligence and Games

Games have long provided a testbed for exploring ideas in artificial or computational intelligence. These activities range from the early work of Arthur Samuel in checkers, to more recent efforts in applying machine learning to video games, social dilemmas, and economics. The implications for these lines of research are manifold. Intelligence itself pertains to the ability to make appropriate decisions in light of specific goals and to adapt behavior to meet those goals in a range of environments. Games provide a framework for studying intelligent behavior in models of real-world settings or restricted domains. This lecture will focus on bio-inspired efforts, computational intelligence in the form of neural, fuzzy, and also evolutionary learning, applied to different games. The state of the art in each example will be assessed and the requirements for future advances will be identified.
