Adrian G. Bors is an Associate Professor at the University of York and has published more than 150 papers in international journals and conferences in the areas of his research interests.
He is interested in supervising projects related to the application of novel artificial intelligence methods and computer vision in Game AI. One of the areas of interest is in the modelling of game characters (intelligent agent) continuously learning from their environments, able to transfer their knowledge from one stage to the next, while accumulating the information, like human/animal beings and enabling to continuously adapt to their environments. Another topic of interest is represented by conditional image and video generation for developing game environments. The conditional video/image generation will depend on certain factors that can be pre-established or be the result of self-learning by an (intelligent agent). Most existing games relying on no movement representation lack in representing realistic and continuous movement. In this direction of research, we will aim to generated video which would be consistent with realistic movement of game characters. Specific attention will be paid to modelling the interaction of the generated movement with the environment or other actors (game characters). In another direction of research, Adrian G. Bors will supervise projects in digital watermarking of 3D graphical characters. Codes will be invisible embedded and retrieved from the 3D graphics representations. The code embedded, like the DNA in human/animals, will enable the character to act in specific ways, defining behavioural traits in similarly looking graphics characters.
