In this episode of Eye on AI, I talk to Julian Togelius,  perhaps the most prolific researcher at the intersection of video games and artificial intelligence. Julian works on AI for games and games for AI. Some of his most significant work is in training deep neural networks to play video games and generalize what they have learned, a critical step toward artificial general intelligence. For those of you who don't understand the importance of video games to artificial intelligence research, Julian will enlighten you. For those of you who do his recent work will surprise you.  I hope you find Julian as interesting as I did.
