I haven't moved everything over yet, though, so this site will stay up for now. Hi! I'm a PhD student in computer science, working in artificial intelligence. My interests are in the structure, design, and gameplay of videogames. To answer those questions, my dissertation is on formally representing and reasoning about videogame mechanics, in a way that is both declarative and modifiable.

As far as affiliations: I'm a student in Georgia Tech's School of Interactive Computing, part of the larger College of Computing. I also do work on interactive narrative, and longer ago did some on the periphery of computer music. You might also be interested in an index of newsgames I maintain, or some notes on a variety of topics. Publications For a more up-to-date list, see my Google Scholar profile.

Adam M. Smith - Postdoc, University of Washington. Rilla Khaled. Julian Togelius. Projects – Gillian Smith. My research interests are in how human designers can interact with procedural systems to create content for games, how to evaluate procedural content generators, and how procedural content generation can enable new playable experiences.

Las coordenadas espacio-temporales dedicadas al ocio han ido provocando cambios en el entorno sociocultural. En la actualidad los espacios de ocio y juego, mayormente digital, tienen un carácter más individual y privado de relación entre los jugadores a través de la maquina –cuando no, del jugador con la misma máquina- y se llevan a cabo en momentos de descanso cotidianos, muchas veces incluso dentro del entorno de trabajo. El presente artículo pretende apuntar cómo desde el ámbito de la creación artística se están proponiendo gestos lúdicos muy en consonancia con el carácter eminentemente social y colectivo de los juegos tradicionales, rescatando así su potencial para favorecer la transformación social y física de la calle. Game Research and Technology. Introduction This page covers topics from abstract research on games to applied technology for commercial video game production.

Game Research and Technology

It aims to appeal to academic researchers and game developers, as well as those who fall somewhere in between. Video game design and production is a fast paced, hit-driven, technology-based field. Hardware used in game consoles and personal computers continues to improve, getting faster and cheaper at a dizzying pace. Video game developers start each new project with increased computational resources, and a long list of cool features they would like to incorporate.

Researchers, working largely in academia and occasionally in industry, are motivated by exploring new technology. These two communities have conflicting goals and very different cultures.

Top 100 Schools for Animation, Gaming, and Design

Historically, The Digital Animation & Visual Effects School (DAVE School at Universal Studios Orlando) has placed a fair number of its graduates in the gaming industry, but now they have a new program specifically designed for careers in gaming. The program was designed and is overseen by a senior production supervisor who led teams on Ghostbusters and Kinect Star Wars.

Si le jeu vidéo est largement entré dans les mœurs et le quotidien d'une importante frange de la population, ses modes de production demeurent pourtant relativement méconnus.

Arrêtons-nous un instant sur la chaîne de production que l’on retrouve assez typiquement dans un studio de développement. Le travail dans un studio est un travail collaboratif où chacun apporte ses compétences particulières en vue d’une finalité partagée par tous. Un flux de production technique peut alors être établi qui permet de segmenter les différents types de compétences collaborant sur un projet.
