Constrained surprise search for content generation

Daniele Gravina, Antonios Liapis, Georgios N. Yannakakis
2016 2016 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG)  
This paper applies a divergent evolutionary search method based on surprise to the constrained problem of generating balanced and efficient sets of weapons for the Unreal Tournament III shooter game.  ...  In procedural content generation, it is often desirable to create artifacts which not only fulfill certain playability constraints but are also able to surprise the player with unexpected potential uses  ...  The weapons are used in the commercially successful Unreal Tournament III (Epic Games 2007) game (UT3).  ...

ViZDoom: A Doom-based AI Research Platform for Visual Reinforcement Learning [article]

Michał Kempka, Marek Wydmuch, Grzegorz Runc, Jakub Toczek and Wojciech Jaśkowski
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In the experimental part, we test the environment by trying to learn bots for two scenarios: a basic move-and-shoot task and a more complex maze-navigation problem.  ...  Using convolutional deep neural networks with Q-learning and experience replay, for both scenarios, we were able to train competent bots, which exhibit human-like behaviors.  ...  Dawes [7] identified Unreal Tournament 2004 as a potential AI research test-bed. El Rhalib studied weapon selection in Quake III Arena [8] .  ...
