ITU's game researchers work with technical, design-related, societal and aesthetic aspects of one of the world's most popular forms of communication. Among the topics researched at ITU are how to improve games with artificial intelligence, whether games cause violent behaviour and addiction, and how game elements can create better interaction in other forms of communication.

From August 13-17, more than 80 computer game researchers from around the world will gather at the IT University of Copenhagen for three consecutive conferences on games analysis, history and philosophy.
A group of researchers has developed an artificial intelligence algorithm that automatically generates new levels for computer games. The technology opens up for new possibilities for adapting the difficulty of game levels to individual players.

Computers have already crushed humans at chess, Go and poker. Now, researchers at the IT University of Copenhagen are training an algorithm to beat the best human players in the sci-fi computer game StarCraft. If the project succeeds, it will be another quantum leap forward for artificial intelligence (AI).

The IT University of Copenhagen has appointed Espen Aarseth Professor of Game Studies, a field he has played a significant role in establishing. On Tuesday, April 4, he will share his take on the state of computer games research and the still unanswered questions about the impact of games on our lives.
Espen Aarseth, Associate Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen, has received one of Europe's most prestigious research grants, an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) of two million Euro. He will spend the next five years laying the groundwork for the first comprehensive theory of computer games.
