Presenter

Ahmad Beirami, Electronic Arts

At EA Digital Platform - Data & AI, we build centralized data-driven and AI-assisted services that power games. In this talk, we begin with an introduction to our data infrastructure and AI platform, that constitute a solid bedrock for solving practical AI problems. We overview several AI applications built on this platform to improve the gameplay experience for hundreds of millions across the globe in addition to contributing scientifically to the research community. We finish with a discussion on the open problems that we are currently tackling. Ahmad Beirami is a research scientist with Electronic Arts (EA) leading fundamental research on multi-agent systems. His research interests broadly include AI, machine learning, statistics, information theory, and networks. Prior to EA, he held postdoctoral fellow positions at Duke, MIT, and Harvard. He is the recipient of the 2013-2014 School of ECE Graduate Research Excellence Award and the 2015 Sigma Xi Best Ph.D. Thesis Award from Georgia Tech.
