Overview: Neither evil nor enlightening, machine learning is about to deeply change your pipelines or the features you offer. A.I. is a hugely misunderstood topic. It has been evolving extremely fast during the last years with machine learning. Although spectacular, those results belong mostly to the academic community and are barely applicable outside of pure research fields. Still, there is a huge consensus that this field is disruptive, and the game industry makes no exception. Beyond buzz and hype, is it time to incorporate those new paradigms in your productions ? And how to reconcile production constraints with an unproven disruptive discipline? This session will explain Ubisoft's strategy to incorporate modern AI in their productions.
