Artificial Intelligence: BEER! XNA 4.0! Windows Phone 7! Bing Maps!

  Artificial Intelligence is a program that learns from experience.  In the Pathfinder game, the program only learns when you run it.  It doesn’t store the state of the gameboard between execution.  For artificial intelligence in the real world most customers would want the Artificial Intelligence to remember between executions.  In consumer oriented businesses, for…

Artificial Intelligence: Language selection

In the Pathfinder project, you can find it on AppHub: http://create.msdn.com/en-US/education/catalog/sample/pathfinding Now, why one language over another?  C# has to be used for the Windows Phone, so that makes it pretty simple for me to select C#, but let’s be fair and look at the other languages out there.
