AIIDE has long been a key point of interaction between academic AI researchers and industry software developers with shared interest in real-world entertainment applications. Interactive digital media, such as games, have served a critical role in fundamental advances in AI. Similarly, AI is essential to the future of interactive digital entertainment, including areas such as procedural content generation, virtual agents, interactive story-telling, augmented or virtual reality, player analytics, and robotics. It is an exciting time to be working at the intersection of AI and interactive digital entertainment, and the AIIDE conference serves a vital role in enabling the exchange of ideas, challenges, and solutions.
