What if every time you sat down to play a video game, the story that unfolded before you was unique to you? That’s the vision of Michael Young, a computer science professor and co-director of the university’s Digital Games Research Center. In this interview with Escapist Magazine, he and Patrick Sebring, lead technical designer at Atomic Games, talk about artificial intelligence in gaming.
Gaming is big business, and researchers and students at NC State are doing some fascinating work in the area. Earlier this year, we posted a few examples of games created last year by students in one of Young’s classes and a link to an article we did last year on gaming at NC State.
