Computer Science Majors Develop Artificial Intelligence for Video Games

SCOPE project focuses on developing intelligent agents using video games and creating visual patterns on a computer screen. Lauren Gillespie, Class of 2019, is a computer science and chemistry double major working alongside Assistant Professor of Math and Computer Science Jacob Schrum to create intelligent agents for video games. “I thought it was really interesting that Professor Schrum’s ideas encompassed a lot of what I learned in biology,” says Gillespie. Gillespie is one of few sophomores chosen to participate in SCOPE, and brings an interdisciplinary mindset to the research.   “That’s what made her stand out to me—that she has a broader interest in science in general, and that interdisciplinary thinking is really important in mixing biology and computer science,” says Schrum. “So I have a student who isn’t just…
