About The Intelligent Goblin

The Intelligent Goblin is a project in which I will build and chronicle the process of creating Goblin Artificial Intelligence. I’ll be using Neural Networks in conjunction with Genetic Algorithms for Neuroevolution / AutoML. I’ll also be covering more traditional game AI mechanics that are not truly machine learning but patterns used by game designers to make intelligence seem intelligent in combination with actual machine learning. For example I’ll be using Influence Maps and Flow Field (pathfinding) to implement Goblin memories of various locations as well as to drive their provided needs beginning with Hunger, Thirst and Energy/Rest. The first published video, Session 0 - An Introduction, will explain all these concepts as well as lay out the initial roadmap for this project.

Your support on Patreon will not only get you some cool swag, but it will give you a deeper level of engagement in the upcoming experiments and your ideas could very well feature in future videos.

Thank you all for your support, in whatever form that takes.
