StarCraft Data Mining

Overview

The StarCraft Data Mining project is part of an effort to automatically acquire knowledge about expert real time strategy (RTS) gameplay by mining thousands of professional StarCraft replays. StarCraft, created by Blizzard Entertainment, is an acclaimed multi-player RTS game set in a science fiction universe. By mining replays, it is possible to predict an opponent's strategy and also predict when the player will execute the strategy. The results of this project are presented in the publications section.
