Emotional agents. Digital actors. AI for games.


I am a researcher, game programmer and lecturer. I am interested in the whole area of videogames from both the design and development aspects. My current focus is on creating socially capable, emotionally aware AI based agents for use within games. I have many years of experience programming games and run an independant development studio called MindFlock ( where we create "Social AI" based games.
