Dr Edward Powley

Computer Science
University of Falmouth

Edward Powley is a Research Fellow at Falmouth University in The MetaMakers Institute. His research interests are centred on artificial intelligence for games, particularly on developing general-purpose AI methods which can play a wide variety of games. He is also an independent game developer, with particular interest in the emergent gameplay possibilities of cutting-edge AI, procedural content generation and physics-based gameplay.

Ed is investigating the use of AI agents as playtesters and assistants in automated game design systems, and using his game development expertise to bring the Institute’s research to market and into the hands of the general public.

Despite being a lecturer on Falmouth University’s BSc. Computing for Games course, he is working towards a future where anyone can create games without writing a single line of code.
