Areas of specialization Game Informatics
Laboratory/research office Game Informatics Laboratory
Games have been well studied as applications of artificial intelligence technology. Thanks to research developments in this field, in many games there are now computer players that are stronger than humans. In this laboratory, we study both the development of strong computer players and how to make game AIs useful and manageable for human players. For example, we focus on developing human-like AIs, adjusting difficulty levels, evaluating player performance, and creating efficient multi-AI cooperative systems.
Current research topics Game programming, especially the use of multiple game AI
