The Great Behavior Tree Debate (May Include Mild Rants)

Alex J. Champandard on March 1, 2014

This enlightening (and somewhat controversial) debate with Join Bobby Anguelov and Alex Champandard covers AI architectures, character design, and behavior trees. In particular, digging into topics such as what is a behavior tree, modularity in practice, building architectures for use from designers, optimization problems and pitfalls, common issues and solutions with behavior trees, and many more topics that (WARNING) may turn into mild rants.
