Find out how bots manage to play competitive games of Capture the Flag, Domination, Capture and Hold, Search and Retrieve, and Search and Destroy that are available both online and offline in KILLZONE 2. This talk looks into the implementation of the AI strategy, and discusses it's strength and reception, as well as possible improvements and what this means for future games.

Speaker: Alex is the mastermind behind AiGameDev.com, the largest online hub and continuous training program for artificial intelligence in games. He has worked in the digital entertainment industry as a senior AI programmer for many years, most notably for Rockstar Games. He regularly consults with leading studios in central Europe, recently finishing a contract on the multiplayer bots for KILLZONE 2 at Guerrilla Games.
With a strong academic background in artificial intelligence, Alex has authored the book AI Game Development: Synthetic Creatures with Learning and Reactive Behaviors and often speaks about his research–in particular at the Paris Game AI Workshops he co-organizes with his wife, Petra. He’s also an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games, and serves on the Program Committee for the AIIDE conference. [1]

You're invited to add your lightning talk below. Don't hesitate to apply even if you feel your presentation isn't perfectly formulated, this isn't expected for such rather spontaneous talks. Chronological order subject to change:
