Plan-Space Hierarchical Heuristic Search for Planned Assault in ARMA II

Alex J. Champandard on June 2, 2014

In this interview with William van der Sterren, you'll hear about an Planned Assault: a web-based mission generator for ARMA II that uses a highly specialized planner. The AI that powers the site can generate large scale manoeuvres that involve hundreds of military units such as infantry, air support and armored divisions. This requires significant insights into the planning process that military uses, and lots of AI planning expertize too.

NOTE: The first 10-15 minutes of the recording suffer from audio issues that we tried our best to fix with post-editing. However, since the content is so interesting we decided to publish this interview anyway. We apologize for the inconvenience!
