Unity ML Agents
AUTOMATED GAME-PLAYING/RL FOR GAME CHARACTERS
Creating responsive and intelligent virtual players and non-playable game characters is hard.
With Unity Machine Learning Agents (ML-Agents), you are teaching intelligent agents to “learn” through a combination of deep reinforcement learning and imitation learning. (As per Unity.)
Procedural generation can be tricky to get started with, so here you can find a list of useful and cool tutorials that show you a new idea or help you get started with a new technology! (As per ProcJam.)
A COMMONLY USED ML APPROACH IN INDIE GAMES
This is a GitHub repository for WaveFunctionCollapse. This program generates bitmaps that are locally similar to the input bitmap. (As per Maxim Gumin.)
Academic Examples I
VIA ML IN GAMES
Some introductory-level machine learning projects that make use of the Video Game Level Corpus.
AI Game Jam Examples
This is a 7-day game jam, focused on using simple or complex AI techniques for the design and mechanics of games. It is hosted by the YouTube channel AI and Games.
(October 21, 2022 to October 28, 2022)
AI and Games Jam 2022
AIJAM was a 9 day game jam March 21-29, 2015 focused on making games where artificial intelligence is the core mechanic. AIJAM is open to anyone and everyone interested in experimenting with AI in games.
AI Game Jam
Here are a couple of industry resources that you can search for talks related to AI and games.
The Game Developers Conference (GDC) is the game industry's premier professional event, championing game developers and the advancement of their craft. GDC brings the game development community together to exchange ideas, solve problems, and shape the future of the industry.
The Roguelike Celebration is a yearly community-generated weekend of talks, games, and conversations about roguelikes and related topics, including procedural generation and game design. It's for fans, players, developers, scholars, and everyone else!
