Competency aims

The aim of the course is that the student learn
to design and realize believable behavior and
intelligence in autonomous (non-player)
characters in 3D games. The student will gain
knowledge in different techniques for artificial
intelligence being popular in games.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student is
expected to know and be able to apply both rule
based and machine learning based
techniques for artificial intelligence when
creating believable behavior for non-player
characters in 3D environments.

Course contents

  • Moving autonomous characters according to
    waypoints
  • "NavMeshes" for pathfinding
  • Finite state machines
  • Introduction to machine learning
  • Reinforcement learning
