Hyperstate Space Graphs for Automated Game Analysis

Michael Cook, Azalea Raad
2019 2019 IEEE Conference on Games (CoG)  
We show how hyperstate space graphs produce compact representations of games which closely relate to the heuristics designed by hand for search-based AI agents; we show how hyperstate space graphs also  ...  Automatically analysing games is an important challenge for automated game design, general game playing, and cocreative game design tools.  ...  HSGs can help automated game designers in several different ways. First and foremost, HSGs greatly compress state space graphs for many games, which makes the act of analysis more efficient.  ...

Automatic Critical Mechanic Discovery Using Playtraces in Video Games [article]

Michael Cerny Green, Ahmed Khalifa, Gabriella A.B. Barros, Tiago Machado, Julian Togelius
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present a new method of automatic critical mechanic discovery for video games using a combination of game description parsing and playtrace information.  ...  Our new playtrace method shows a significant performance improvement over the baseline for all 4 tested games.  ...  Hyperstate analysis might give insight into which mechanics should be considered "critical" or vice versa.  ...

Knowledge-Based Control for Robot Arm [chapter]

Aboubekeur Hamdi-Cherif
2011 Robot Arms  
Its queues, graphs and game-theoretic situations are typical of the variety of control applications.  ...  Stability here is based on the Popov hyperstability method (Popov, 1973) .  ...  Nowadays, the robot arms are indispensable for automation of factories. Moreover, applications of the robot arms are not limited to the industrial factory but expanded to living space or outer space.  ...
