Games have been leveraging AI since the 1950s, when people built a rules-based AI engine that played tic-tac-toe. With technological advances over the years, AI has become increasingly popular and widely used in the gaming industry. The typical characteristics of games and game development makes them an ideal playground for practicing and implementing AI techniques, especially deep learning and reinforcement learning. Most games are well scoped; it is relatively easy to generate and use the data; and states/actions/rewards are relatively clear. In this talk, I will show a couple of use cases where ML/AI helps in-game development and enhances player experience. Examples include AI agents playing game and services that provide personalized experience to players.
