The third International Summer School on Artificial Intelligence and Games will be held online, hosted from Copenhagen, Denmark, from July 5 to 9, 2021. The school is organised by modl.ai in partnership with Unity, DeepMind, and Creative Assembly, Ubisoft, King, and Microsoft.
Modl.ai is listed as one of the top 100 promising AI startups in the world and has a close relationship with the Institute of Digital Games - University of Malta, therefore five places for the special rate of 50 Euros only (the regular fee would be 200 Euros) are being made available to University of Malta students.
The summer school is dedicated to the uses of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in and for games. After introductory lectures that explain the background and key techniques in AI and games, the school will introduce participants to the uses of AI for playing games, for generating content for games, and for modeling players.
This school is suitable for industrial game developers, designers, programmers and practitioners, but also for graduate students in games, artificial intelligence, design, human-computer interaction, and computational intelligence.
The main lecturers are Georgios N. Yannakakis and Julian Togelius, co-authors of the AI and Games textbook, the first comprehensive textbook on the use of AI in games. During the first phase of the school theoretical lectures will be complemented by guest lectures on special topics in game AI and by hands-on workshops given by world-leading practitioners such as Duygu Cakmak of Creative Assembly, Sahar Asadi and Matteo Biaisielli of King, Daniel McDuff of Microsoft, Vincent-Pierre Berges of Unity will be lecturing about Unity and their Machine Learning Agents.
The Summer School ends with game AI jam where you can put everything you’ve learned into practice and have a chance to work (and learn) alongside some of the leading AI programmers in the industry.
The number of special-rate places is limited and will be given away on a first come-first-served basis! Regular registration will close on 15 June 2021. The fee covers the course tuition, all documents, a certificate and the digital social program. Contact the Institute of Digital Games to receive your special registration discount.
