We research with games!
Here in the Game Research Lab (GRL) we use digital games as a medium for academic research. We consider entertainment games and 'serious' games equally valuable objects of study, and involve both in our work. The GRL develops novel computational and design approaches for creating, playing, and analysing games; and pursue both the application of state-of-the-art AI research to games and new insights for AI from games. The GRL is fundamentally interdisciplinary and actively pursues collaborations that challenge the current understanding of games. Our research has strong links to HCI, cognitive science, social science, and digital humanities.
