Games in Science and Technology

Computer Intelligence Focus of Conference

De Montfort University LogoWorld-leading experts in the field of computer engineering and technology will be gathering at the 2008 UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI 2008) from September 10-12, 2008 at the De Montfort University in Leicester, UK. The conference focuses on the role of intelligent computers, notably as they relate to video games and medicine.

The domain encompasses fuzzy systems (a mathematical system used to express concepts that cannot be expressed as "true" or "false" but rather as "partially true”), neural networks (systems that perform a specific types of functions) machine learning and evolutionary computation (a method of searching the space of possible solutions to a problem by selectively creating new solutions from the best obtained so far).

Notable workshops will include Jafreezal Jaafar’s presentation on the “Reactive Architecture for Intelligent Agents in Computer Games”. Jaafar has also previously worked on game design using fuzzy logic. As the field of computer intelligence is rapidly gaining ground, its applications are becoming increasingly recognized.

"We're looking forward to discussing a huge range of exciting topics, including intelligence in video games, intelligent analysis of medical images and intelligent solutions to supply chain problems,” said Dr. Simon Coupland, General Chair of the workshop in a news release.
