Speaker: Ahmad Beirami, Research Scientist, Electronic Arts (EA)
Abstract: At EA Digital Platform – Data & AI, we build centralized data-driven and AI-assisted services that power games. In this talk, we begin with an introduction to our data infrastructure and AI platform, that constitute a solid bedrock for solving practical AI problems. We overview several AI applications built on this platform to improve the gameplay experience for hundreds of millions across the globe in addition to contributing scientifically to the research community. We finish with a discussion on the open problems that we are currently tackling.
