This Spring I co-taught CAP4053 “Artificial Intelligence for Computer Games” with my colleague Doug Dankel. Doug has taught this course for many years and it’s always been a highly popular tech elective for undergraduates in our department. Doug will be retiring this December, and I’ll be taking on the class. We taught two sections with a total of 56 students. The course focuses on game design and development, and culminates with groups of students developing their own game concepts into a playable demo for a showcase at the end of the semester, “Game Day.” You can see more information about the course in the syllabus.
