At AiGameDev.com we’re always looking for new ways to help you connect with other people involved in game AI, and of course, with information on the subject in general. Obviously, you know about the blog (RSS), the Game AI Forums and our new Game AI Wiki. But what you may not know about is all the stuff we’ve been doing in the background!
Firstly, there’s a double Marathon Q&A on October 7th or October 8th: “Almost Everything You Wanted to Know about Game AI”, with me. Based on the previous feedback, these sessions seem to be really useful and interesting, so here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about. Pick the session that fits your timezone best:
Session 1 — 6 P.M. (Europe), 5 P.M. (U.K. Time), Noon (East Coast), other timezones.
Session 2 — Midnight (Europe), 11 P.M. (U.K. Time), 6 P.M. (East Coast), other timezones.
You can find all the details here: http://live.aigamedev.com. We’ll most likely cover similar topics in both sessions, but there may be differences based on the questions and the audience.
If you have a profile on LinkedIn, you might be interested in joining our Game AI Developers group. Like with most activity on LinkedIn, this group will be a little more professional, and networking oriented.
Many videos about game AI and animation papers are hard to find, so we centralized them and put them all on YouTube. The result is what we call Game AI TV, which currently has 46 technical videos which describe ideas implemented in white papers.
Petra also started a group on Facebook. Don’t expect the kind of in-depth discussions that you’ll find in the forums here, but it’ll be a good way to keep up-to-date with the various activities going on both at AiGameDev.com and in the Game AI community in general.
This one is an acquired taste, but those of you that are on Twitter can follow the Behind the Scenes story about our work on AiGameDev.com. I primarily post stuff related to the site or game AI… You heard first about Paris ‘09 here!
If you have any suggestions of other social media channels that you would like to interact in, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
