8th GLODEM AI & CSS Seminar – Game Research as a Multi-Purpose Domain

In this talk, a brief introduction to the game research domain will be presented with recent applications and challenges from the reinforcement learning domain and serious games—games that have ulterior motives rather than entertainment. The reinforcement learning examples will cover game testing agents, Monte Carlo Tree Search Algorithm enhancement for video game testing, and a new relational reasoning environment for relational information extraction. The talk’s serious games section will exemplify virtual reality and mixed reality-based games and case studies from recent interdisciplinary collaborations on mining, architecture, and civil engineering.
