Agents Behavior and Preferences Characterization in Civilization IV

Marlos C. Machado, Bruno S. L. Rocha, Luiz Chaimowicz
2011 2011 Brazilian Symposium on Games and Digital Entertainment  
Using AI controlled players in Civilization IV as a testbed, this characterization is performed by extracting game data (score and resources, for example) at the end of each turn and generating functions  ...  In this paper, we try to characterize the preference of the players using a novel approach in games: we use mathematical regressions to characterize players behavior, looking for functions that best fit  ...  Pieter Spronck who kindly shared with us the dataset analyzed in this paper. We also thank Amadeu Almeida by our discussions about Civilization IV characteristics.  ...

A Methodology for Player Modeling based on Machine Learning [article]

Marlos C. Machado
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We presented a characterization of virtual agents in the game, comparing their behavior with their stated preferences.  ...  We also presented a generic approach to deal with player modeling using ML, and we instantiated this approach to model players' preferences in the game Civilization IV.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors survey the field, classifying each work in one of four categories: Player Action Modeling, Player Tactics Modeling, Player Strategies Modeling and Player Profiling.  ...

A binary classification approach for automatic preference modeling of virtual agents in Civilization IV

Marlos C. Machado, Gisele L. Pappa, Luiz Chaimowicz
2012 2012 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG)  
In this paper we infer Civilization IV's virtual agents preferences with classifiers based on support vector machines.  ...  Player Modeling tries to model players behaviors and characteristics during a game. When these are related to more abstract preferences, the process is normally called Preference Modeling.  ...  Pieter Spronck who kindly shared with us the original dataset discussed in this paper and was constantly available to further discuss his work, solving our doubts about it.  ...
