Pathfinding with the A* Algorithm in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
Tired of your video game AI running into walls all the time? Then come and find out how to navigate around obstacles with pathfinding algorithms! Learn how to use A*, an efficient algorithm for finding the fastest traversable path between two points. Beyond game AI, you can use it to solve mazes, calculate the fastest route on a map, and more. I will teach A* on a conceptual level, and then explain the code for a JavaScript implementation of the algorithm if time permits. At the end of the class, you'll be able to run the code on your phone or laptop and experiment with the algorithm.
