Steering Doesn't Just Happen

The gaming-oriented Artificial Intelligence Interface Standards Committee has some great working group names. Of course there are the old standbys:

  • Working Group on Finite State Machines
  • Working Group on Rule-based Systems
  • Working Group on Goal-oriented Action Planning
  • Working Group on Pathfinding

But then there are a few fun ones:

  • Working Group on World Interfacing
  • Working Group on Steering

World interfacing! Though I wish someone with a little poetic sensibility had been called in, so we could have the Working Group on the Thick Membrane Separating One Universe From Another or the Working Group on God's API or the Working Group on Cross-Worlding: How Do We Make It Less Dirty? (OK, maybe I don't have any poetic sensibility either.)
