Interested in Game Programming or AI? UT's College of Natural
Sciences will again this Fall offer a class focusing on the NERO video
game (www.nerogame.org), an
award-winning game AI project that has been featured on Slashdot,
Games Digest, AAAI, KXAN, and numerous other venues. In this class,
you will learn about different aspects of video game technology and
will get hands-on experience in working with a real game engine. You
will become familiar with cutting-edge AI research that may play a
central role in the next generation of video games. The students work
together in a team, exploring next-generation AI techniques as well as
further developing NERO as an exciting game and as a valuable research
platform for artificial intelligence.
There are no specific prerequisites, however you should
be truly excited about working in some aspect of game technology and
dedicated to making the team project a success.
