Making Sense of Games

IT University of Copenhagen

My research interests include biologically-inspired computation such as evolutionary robotics, self-organizing systems, indirect encodings like HyperNEAT, and design automation. I am also interested in research at the intersection of AI and games, which can make our technologies accessible to a broader audience. To this end, I am currently leading the development of a new evolutionary content-generating Facebook game called Petalz.
