  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence: What about space aliens and the software to communicate with them?

    Ok, I should do a nice table here to show how C# compares to LISP, but I got off track reading science fiction related to space alien communications. To get some ideas on intelligence and especially space alien intelligence, I went to Minsky , he wrote an interesting article on alien intelligence...
  • Blog Post: Physics, Object oriented programming, Artificial Intelligence, Space Aliens and Students

    Well with the post on communicating with space aliens, you might be thinking that I am having a mental health problem or I am channeling George Noory or Art Bell from Coast to Coast AM . The real reason is that I have recently completed Joseph Campbells audio book titled: Mythology and the Individual...
  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence: What programming language should I learn to do Artificial Intelligence?

    LISP? Visual Basic? VC++? C#? Something else like SNOBOL or Flowmatic (just kidding)... I would say C#, my apologies to John McCarthy, see his papers referenced at his Stanford site , and also I quote from his excellent paper: " LISP-Notes on its Past and Future-1980" in this blog entry. LISP is the...
  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence Tutorial: Video Games and Artificial Intelligence

    This is an interesting tutorial, although it more like a reading and viewing of a slide deck and not a true tutorial. Video Games and Artificial Intelligence Other tutorials or papers you might want to take a look at are: Paper from 1996, easy read for anyone who has taken probabilities: ftp://ftp.research...
  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence: Reflections on Turing’s "Computing Machinery and Intelligence"

    I have just finished reading "Computing Machinery And Intelligence" By A. M. Turing, and if you are thinking about doing game design, you need to read this article. It is humorous and fun to read, no math or symbolic logic symbols, clearly Turing was having fun when he wrote this. To find out how modern...
  • Blog Post: Anticryptography

    I just got my aluminum hat tuned up. Communicating with an unknown recipient is something fasinates me. Strangely enough, there are a number of early branches of computer language design in developing artificial intelligence, as well as communication theory. One of the early articles, and it reads...
  • Blog Post: Practical use of Artificial Intelligence: Making Beer

    Practical use of Artificial Intelligence: Making Beer In other articles I have discussed artificial intelligence in games and the cognitive types. Another practical use of artificial intelligence is to use it to help in brewing beer. An article (Threapleton and Wilson) , http://www.neurosolutions...
  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence will eat your brain, you could live forever

    Will AI eat your brain?  This question recently came up in a conversation.  Is there a possibility that AI will someday be able to map your brain so that you could have a simulated longer lifespan?  Thinking about Elizabeth Taylor, she will live on, at least on Turner Classic Movies (TCM...
  • Blog Post: Silverlight: Windows Phone From Scratch, good tutorial for all

      Learning how to develop on the phone, I have found a tutorial you may want to take a look at, it goes on for a bit, but seems to be complete.

  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence appears to be a poor choice for Windows Phone 7 design blogs

    Wow, I just checked my numbers on blogging, and it appears that Artificial Intelligence is not an interesting subject to many people.  Darn. Oh well, my fingers push the keys and you get what you get.  Maybe I should just do links and stuff like that, or talk about what I do.  Nay, it...
  • Blog Post: Windows Phone 7: AI, Pathfinding and working with the images

    , I like to play games against game artificial intelligence, mainly because I hate getting my posterior kicked in Halo Reach by a 12 year old.  In fact I don’t even like to game with anyone under 18, not because they aren’t worthy competitors, but our society has set up pretty strict safety zones...
  • Blog Post: Windows Phone 7 and Artificial Intelligence

    <<Fake AI: Movie Reality <<Real AI: PathFinder   A real AI with a reputation: Artificial Intelligence, almost an oxymoron, but not quite.  What is intelligence?  Deep question, is intelligence demonstrated by the ability to play Chess?  Then there a large number of people...
  • Blog Post: Using Functions in C#

    In the video that I have embedded in this blog post, I am restarting my blog and will work out the curriculum issues that I have been talking about.  Got caught up in the Imagine Cup, it all worked out really well for the team I am on, have to shout out for Cy Khormaee, Bradley Jensen and Krishna...
  • Blog Post: Class Diagram: Star Trek Enterprise as Love Boat

    Using Class Diagrams Check out the video to see how to use class diagrams! Now I am thinking that this racing game, was a bad choice due to it’s requirement for excellent processing, and doesn’t run well on laptops in debug mode.  I initially started this series of blogs using a “gaming” machine...
  • Blog Post: Interesting console game: Motorized Barstool

    What does the motorized barstool have to do with this blog, nothing, except wouldn’t that make for an interesting game avatar? Of course I would never use a cleaver mechanism to attract the search engines by discussing drunks riding motorized barstools? Of course not, I just think that motorized barstools...
  • Blog Post: FUN: Use UML to map your great game idea design processes

      Use UML to help map your game design Use UML to help you build a map help you navigate your game design.  UML is often taught using a disciplined approach, and it might seem boring, but it is important that you learn how to use it correctly.  Many companies use UML for architectural...
  • Blog Post: AI: Autonomous Avatars

    I’ll admit it, WOW is fun, but I wear out after about 45 minutes, what a putz right?  WOW makes me think about the idea of autonomous avatars.  (And yes I know that I should start this thread with State machines, but let’s start with the avatars). These autonomous avatars motion could be broken...
  • Blog Post: WOW: Lua, World of Warcraft and AI

    Oh, oh, lack of focus right?  Lua and Artificial Intelligence, WTF, well I get in trouble with “lack of focus” from time to time…ok, all of the time.  Life is like taking a walk on the beach, you see the ocean, the birds, and the sand.  Then you look more carefully at the waves, you lose...
  • Blog Post: WOW: WOW AddonStudio

    All I can say is WOW, I will be reporting more deeply on the WOW AddonStudio that uses the Visual Studio Isolated Shell.  This is a well put together package, that clearly shows up Dan Fernandez’s and the team of programmers who worked on it.  Just fantastic.  This is a great example of...
  • Blog Post: What is good subject material? Courts have made the decision

    As you build your games, you need to think about the subject material.  The more appealing your subject material the wider your audience. Recently, the Los Angeles Times ran an article about “ Parents issue warning about the Lost and the Damned ” add-on for Grand Theft auto.  Apparently there...

  • Blog Post: The Imagine Cup: Imagine That!

    As I write about communications with aliens, I have found out about the Imagine Cup, and my discussion about game design can certainly be used to win some very large coinage! Like 15,000 dollars in coinage! Imagine that you, a friend or relative could win $8,000 for taking some pictures about the...
  • Blog Post: Building an XNA game and having fun!

    Ok, ok, I have been having some mental issues, now that I have repaired my aluminum foil hat, and added some new features, I can get back to writing about the writing programs to communicate with space aliens. Gee whiz, in one of my past lives, I used to design satellite systems, so I guess this works...
  • Blog Post: Escape Velocity, Artificial Intelligence and Space Aliens

    It appears that the one of the MoteAI coming in from interstellar space is changing its orbit so that it will pass over the Earth, but it is still traveling faster then 618 kilometers per second, which means that the MoteAI would still be able to fly out of the solar system with no additional trust....
  • Blog Post: Artificial Intelligence: Fixing the Education system

    Could cognitive artificial intelligence fix the K-12 education system in the US? How would that work? Would it lead to tyranny? Recently, Microsoft has started to work on tools (not based on AI) such as the Sharepoint Learning Kit (SLK), which looks very good for low cost class management and learning...
