AIIDE 08 Post-mortem

The best thing about AIIDE has to be the industry participation. In my experience, AI researchers are prone to a kind of hubris that expresses itself as “Here is a problem (in games or engineering or medicene) that could be solved using AI. I know all about AI. Therefore, I can solve this problem.” The ‘solutions’ that are thus produced are often laughably innapropriate or otherwise bad when examined by someone who actually works in the field.

Have games will travel

I’m off to the USA next week to attend AIIDE and then visit people at USC. It’s 13 hours flying and I’ve got a great swag of books to take on the plane, so maybe I’ll even get some reviewing done while I’m travelling. And maybe I’ll post a photo or two along the way.
