CADIA seminar: Kate Compton

  • 5.11.2015, 11:00 - 12:00


CADIA Seminar this Thursday (open to anyone)

TITLE: Let It Grow: Practical procedural generation from the ground up
SPEAKER: Kate Compton, UC Santa Cruz, California, USA
TIME: Thursday the 5th of November, 11:00 - 12:00
LOCATION: M108 (Reykjavik University)

Procedural generation can be difficult and disappointing, or it can be very, very easy.  The difference can often be in something as simple as a choice of data structures.  This approachable and very practical lecture will demonstrate the way that data structures will change how you debug your code, interact with your PCG, and even let you control your generativity with interfaces like the LeapMotion and Kinect.

Kate Compton is a long-time PCG practitioner.  She wrote the first paper on procedural platformer levels, generated the planets for Spore, and wrote the latest SimCity fire system.  She is now a PhD candidate at UC Santa Cruz developing artificial intelligence to augment human creativity with generative art.  She likes laser cutting, 3D printing, founding companies, and baking.
