recognition, and learning, and it outlines the
research contributions in each of these areas.

is low because it is either inapplicable or too
time-consuming and risky to implement in a
new game, which highlights an area for
potential investigation: bridging the gap
between academe and industry. Finally, the
areas of spatial reasoning, multiscale AI, and
cooperation are found to require future work,
and standardized evaluation methods are proposed
to produce comparable results between
