Chapter 2. The Design of Intelligence

Key Topics

This chapter looks under the hood of game engines, revealing how designs are brought to life by the artificial intelligence (AI). As expected, developing a system capable of providing nonplayer characters (NPCs) with intelligence is an imposing engineering task.

The next few pages tackle the following topics:

  • How to move from the design to the AI development

  • The traditional approach to game AI

  • A different approach to game AI, relying more on learning and embodiment

  • The background knowledge required to pull this off

  • An outline of the AI development process, examining the important stages

The principles presented here apply throughout the rest of this book.
