For all you people out there who are interested in game development, here is a great technical article for you. Computer engineering students at Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica Vicente Carlos de Alencar Jr. and Diego Silva Dias have published an article on Artificial Intelligence as used in gaming.
This particular piece focuses on using genetic programming, which is an evolutionary technique based on Darwinian concepts of natural selection. Game developers can apply this method to a computer model to find an optimal solution to produce a better A.I. for a 2-dimensional soccer team in a game. Read the full article in Gamasutra.
