10:31 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Gamasutra is reporting that in his keynote address to the Special Interest Group for Graphics tradeshow (SIGGRAPH), George Lucas spoke about the need for better artificial intelligence in computer games. The renowned director, producer, screenwriter, and father of the iconic Star Wars universe announced plans for LucasArts to improve AI and speech recognition in future games.

Lucas indicated that he wants to work with LucasArts to improve artificial intelligence and speech recognition in games "to a point where you can talk to the game and it will talk back."

Lucas hopes that advanced AI will not only make games more challenging but improve the storytelling as well. "I think that will change games from first-person shooter narratives to intelligent and challenging first-person shooter-type dramas," he said.
Lucas also spoke of his upcoming Clone War television series, to be created at LucasFilm's new Singapore studio. SIGGRAPH is a show targeted mainly at the creators of the computer generated effects you see in games and movies. For the entire article click the link below.
