Rochester Institute of Technology This is the first serious attempt to create a comprehensive reference for all game AI prac- tices, terminology, and know-how.
Works like this are badly needed by the maturing video games industry. Systematic yet accessible, it is a must-have for any student or pro- fessional. I would highly recommend it for people in the industry. Any game developer working on AI will learn something from this book, and game producers should make sure their AI programmers have a copy.
Eberly, Geometric Tools, Inc. The game industry is a powerful and driving force in the evolution of computer tech- nology. As the capabilities of personal computers, peripheral hardware, and game consoles have grown, so has the demand for quality information about the algo- rithms, tools, and descriptions needed to take advantage of this new technology. To satisfy this demand and establish a new level of professional reference for the game de- veloper, we created the Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive 3D Technology.

Towards Indexing of Web3D Signing Avatars
In the early days of the Web a need was recognized for a language to display 3D objects through a browser. However VRML, because it was based on HTML, is a stodgy language that is not easy to incorporate with other applications and has been difficult to add features to. Meanwhile, applications for interactive 3D graphics have been exploding in areas such as medicine, science, industry, and entertainment. X3D is the next generation open standard for 3D on the web. Instead of a large monolithic specification like VRML , which requires full adoption for compliance, X3D is a component-based architecture that can support applications ranging from a simple non-interactive animation to the latest streaming or rendering applications.
In Tunisia, signing avatars have been used since several years as part of the WebSign project. During the last few years, thousands of 3D signing avatars have been recorded using WebSign and few other systems. One of the major challenges that we was facing is how to index and retrieve efficiently this huge quantity of 3D signed scenes. Indexing and cataloging these signed scenes is beyond the capabilities of current text-based search engines. In this paper, we describe a system that collects 3D signed scenes, processes and recognizes the signed words inside them.
The processed scenes are then indexed for later retrieval.
We use a novel approach for sign language recognition from 3D scenes based on the Longest Common Subsequence algorithm. Our system is able to recognize signs inside 3D scenes at a rate of We present also a novel approach for search and results ranking based on the similarity rates between 3D models. Our method is more efficient than Hidden Markov Models in term of recognition time and in the case of co-articulated signs.
