Recommended Curriculum for AI Classes
Part of the mission the AI Game Programmers Guild is to further the advancement of game AI. However is not entirely limited to the discovery of new knowledge and research. We are interested in helping the industry as a whole by helping to ensure that new AI programmers are armed with the necessary core knowledge to make an impact. Unfortunately, we have found that many educational systems — even those that are geared specifically towards game development — are at a loss as to what techniques would be of the most benefit to students looking to enter game development as AI programmers.
To that end, we are in the process of attempting to achieve a Guild consensus on what would be valuable knowledge and experience for an educational institution to offer as a part of their AI courses.
Due to the complex nature of putting together a unified document on this subject, this is still a discussion in progress. Check back soon for more information.
