Modeling Individual Differences in Game Behavior using HMM [article]

Sara Bunian, Alessandro Canossa, Randy Colvin, Magy Seif El-Nasr
2018 arXiv   pre-print
While few works have explored sequential analysis of player data, none have explored the use of Hidden Markov Models (HMM) to model individual differences, which is the topic of this paper.  ...  However, players' individual differences may be better manifested through sequential patterns of the in-game player's actions.  ...  In addition to correlating personality measures with game behavior, Chen et al. (2015) recently utilized sequence pattern mining to further understand the impact of individual differences on game behaviors  ...
