The game of Amazons is a young board game with simple rules, nice mathematical properties yet a high complexity between chess and Go. The state of the art Amazons solver was presented by Martin Müller in 2001 with which he solved the Amazons 5 × 5 starting position as a first player win. This...
Many computer games use custom scripts to control the ambient behaviors of non-player characters (NPCs). Therefore, a story writer must write fragments of computer code for the hundreds or thousands of NPCs in the game world. The challenge is to create entertaining and non-repetitive behaviors...
To compete in today's market, companies that develop computer role-playing games (CRPGs) must quickly and reliably create realistic, engaging game stories. Indeed, intricate storylines and realism that goes beyond graphics have become major product differentiators. To establish both, it's...
Havannah is a recent game that is interesting from an AI research perspective. Some of its properties, including virtual connections, frames, dead cells, draws and races to win, are explained. Monte Carlo Tree Search (MCTS) is well suited to play Havannah, but many improvements are possible....
Technical report TR04-05. Recently, some researchers have argued that generative design patterns (GDPs) can leverage the obvious design re-use that characterizes traditional design patterns into code re-use. This paper provides additional evidence that GDPs are both useful and productive. ...
The work presented in this dissertation was focused on developing an affordable, automated, upper extremity exercise system suitable for individuals with stroke and spinal cord injury (SCI). The three studies presented in this thesis demonstrated the efficacy of functional electrical...
