Video Presentation from IIIM and CADIA’s Open Day – General Game Playing: Learning to Play

Dr. Yngvi Björnsson.

Game-playing has always proved a promising test ground for artificial general intelligence and tool for evaluating how a system learns. Dr. Yngvi Björnsson presented and explained General Game Playing (GGP) and its contribution to the field of AI. He also introduced the CADIA-Player, which recently won the 2012 international GGP Competition. The CADIA player has the unique ability to “think ahead” when it plays a game so that moves are optimized and the non-human player is competitive. Reykjavik University collaborates with Stanford and a broader international research community to develop GGP systems and solve many of the unanswered questions that still remain. 

This presentation is a part of a series of presentations that were held on IIIM Open Day last spring.

This year IIIM Open Day was held in collaboration with RU’s Center for Analysis and Design of Intelligent Agents (CADIA), which is one of its closest collaborators making for very impressive and interesting presentations.
