Cutting Edge R & D

Koolhaus has a long standing history of developing cutting edge technology both in house and in partnership with others such as Simon Fraser University. Here are some of the highlights:

KoolAi: Koolhaus has developed ground breaking artificial intelligence where NPC's (non playable characters) have emotions, learn from their "environments", and much more. KoolAi NPC's are as far from being robotic as real, living, breathing human beings are. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to tell if KoolAi NPC's were in fact NPC's or real players.

KoolPlan: KoolPlan is a subset of KoolAi. It's primary feature is to provide goals, direction, etc. to NPC's so that the worlds they inhabit are living, breathing, and evolving. This provides a level of immersion not seen in games before.

Using our KoolAi and KoolPlan technologies has the added benefit of reducing overall AI implementation costs by 75%.

KoolTrans: Our text translation system is a self improving, highly efficient, and incredibly fast translation system that is adaptable to many situations.

KoolAi, KoolPlan and KoolTrans were developed with support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program.

Koolhaus has sponsored five Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council research projects with Simon Fraser University.
