Bayesian Networks for Micromanagement Decision Imitation in the RTS Game Starcraft [chapter]

Ricardo Parra, Leonardo Garrido
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The results obtained proved that imitation through the implementation of bayesian networks can be achieved.  ...  This research provides an approach that implements an imitation of the player's decisions as a mean for micromanagement combat in the RTS game Starcraft.  ...  This can enable online learning in order to train a bayesian network on a full game rather than on a specific map.  ...

The Challenge of Believability in Video Games: Definitions, Agents Models and Imitation Learning [article]

Fabien Tencé, Pierre De Loor
2010 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we address the problem of creating believable agents (virtual characters) in video games.  ...  For high level of believability, learning and especially imitation learning seems to be the way to go. We make a quick overview of different approaches to make video games' agents learn from players.  ...  Imitation Learning in Computer Sciences The main reason we chose imitation learning is that believability is quite linked with resembling to the demonstrator, in our case humans.  ...

Believability Testing and Bayesian Imitation in Interactive Computer Games [chapter]

Bernard Gorman, Christian Thurau, Christian Bauckhage, Mark Humphrys
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In imitation learning, agents are trained to carry out certain actions by examining a demonstration of the task at hand.  ...  Though common in robotics, little work has been done in translating these concepts to computer games.  ...  In this paper, we detail part of our work in this area; a Bayesian-based approach to the derivation and imitation of human strategic behaviour and motion patterns in commercial computer games.  ...

Teaching Bayesian behaviours to video game characters

Ronan Le Hy, Anthony Arrigoni, Pierre Bessière, Olivier Lebeltel

Status and Power Do Not Modulate Automatic Imitation of Intransitive Hand Movements

Harry Farmer, Evan W. Carr, Marita Svartdal, Piotr Winkielman, Antonia F. de C. Hamilton, Alessio Avenanti
2016 PLoS ONE  
Experiments 1 and 2 manipulated the social status of the observed person using an associative learning task. Experiment 3 manipulated social status via perceived competence at a simple computer game.  ...  Additionally, Bayesian hypothesis testing indicated that the null hypothesis should be favoured over the experimental hypothesis in all five studies.  ...  Manipulating competence in the letter-game task allowed us to encourage participants to compare their own status to that of the characters, by having the participants also take part in the game (thus always  ...

Towards autonomous behavior learning of non-player characters in games

Shu Feng, Ah-Hwee Tan
2016 Expert systems with applications  
Non-Player-Characters (NPCs), as found in computer games, can be modelled as intelligent systems, which serve to improve the interactivity and playability of the games.  ...  The DSL and MML strategies have been applied to creating autonomous non-player characters (NPCs) in a first person shooting game named Unreal Tournament.  ...  Introduction Intelligent non-player characters (NPCs) in computer games can potentially make the games more challenging and enjoyable.  ...

From motion capture to action capture

Bernhard Jung, Heni Ben Amor, Guido Heumer, Matthias Weber
2006 Proceedings of the ACM symposium on Virtual reality software and technology - VRST '06  
In this approach, virtual characters learn to imitate the actions of Virtual Reality (VR) users by tracking not only the users' movements but also their interactions with scene objects.  ...  The idea of action capture is inspired by human imitation learning; related methods have been investigated for a longer time in robotics.  ...  Another way to conceptualize action capture is as a learning method for behavior-based virtual characters that empowers virtual characters to learn novel complex behaviors from basic behaviors by imitating  ...
