Xaitment nets €1.2 million investment

Funding to be used for further AI and simulation software development

AI and simulation developer Xaitment has secured a further €1.2 million ($1.6m) investment from Triangle and KfW.

The software developer intends to use the funding to further behavioural modelling software for games and simulations, and expects the first fruits of the investment to launch in the first half of 2012.

"No other vendor has the ability or knowledge to develop higher level behavioural AI," commented Mike Walsh, CEO.

"Admittedly, these new solutions will not be right for every game, but we know there is a good portion of the PC and console market, as well as the civil and military simulation market, that is currently writing advanced AI behaviours from scratch, and could really benefit from tools that ease the process of creating smarter digital characters."
