Awards/ Interests: Poker madness at PARC
PARC Area Manager Eric Saund won the Best Conference Paper Award for his personal paper (presented at the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Games), “Capturing the Information Conveyed by Opponents’ Betting Behavior in Poker”. According to Saund, “Poker is a currently popular instance of a very general machine learning and inference problem in understanding the activities of intentional agents.” Other pertinent PARC poker papers (alliteration aside!) include “Dealing Cards in Poker Games” and “Keeping Bots out of Online Games”.
