Session Name Helping It All Emerge: Managing Crowd AI in 'Watch Dogs 2'
Speaker(s) Roxanne Blouin-Payer
Company Name(s) Ubisoft
Track / Format AI Summit
Overview

'Watch Dogs 2' is, at its core, about hacking technology. However, hacking technology is only a means to an end, that of being able to socially engineer your way above society. In order to fully realize that fantasy, the player needs to be able to witness and interact with life-like AI game characters that have a personality, emotions, and even a dose of unpredictability. This lecture will show how Ubisoft approached emergent AI in order to fill their world with interesting, reactive characters to create countless unique, unscripted, but ultimately memorable anecdotes.
