Games & Artificial Intelligence: Reconstruction and Playing Ancient Games
Instructor – Dr. Walter Christ
Medium – English
Historical and archaeological research into the games has been hindered by one of the most basic facts about traditional games: the rules were rarely written down. Because people typically learn games from their relatives or peers, there was never a necessity to document rules in their complete forms until the beginnings of commercialization. For this reason, historical, artistic and anthropological evidences are largely full of holes, where the pieces of rule sets are known but many questions remain unanswered.
