Video games are a part of daily life for many of us. From Mario Kart with friends to Legend of Zelda to old-school Snake. We’ve been innovating and challenging ourselves with different scenarios, worlds, and game type over the years. So what’s the next big leap in gaming? We talked with Dr. Arend Hintze from MSU who works on applying artificial intelligence to video games. He explains how the artificial intelligence he works on is different from what we discussed last week, some of the fun applications of it, and some of the questions we need to bear in mind as we move into the future. Sci-fi fans- you’ll love this week’s episode!
Here’s a link to a news article about Dr. Hintze’s video game and his lab’s website.
