The Integrated Influence Architecture

Written by on .

The cornerstone of my research, the Integrated Influence Architecture (or I2A) is an endeavour to marry long-term deliberative reasoning with quick and easily calculated reactive reasoning. These two paradigms of AI have traditionally been at opposite ends of the spectrum, but they both had their advantages. As we move towards thinking about our NPCs being smarter, we need them to act in rational and realistic manners that respect their long term plans, but we need to do that using as little processor time as possible.
