Bungie Strive For Near Human AI

Bungie recently posted an interview with Max Dyckhoff, their new AI engineer. It is basicall a recap on his new position but fortunately there is small portion on Bungie’s next game. Apparently the AI is going to be something we have never seen before.

[i]”Sketch: Hey Max, welcome to Bungie! What is your job here at Bungie? Tell us a little about what you’ll be doing (of course without revealing any secret details of our next project!).

Max: Hi Brian! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to interview me – it’s a real honour. I’ve been brought on board as a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) engineer. I work with Damian Isla on making the AI in the next game so amazing that it will make you feel as if you are playing with or against human players all of the time. Seriously, Damian and I have a plethora of very cool ideas for things the AI characters can do that will draw you even deeper into the game world. I will be implementing behaviours in characters that will really engage the player – possibly even making them want to marry them.”[/i]

Will it live up to the hype?
