    ・ Console development of an automated driving AI
    ・ Technical development of machine learning
    ・ Development of related tools

    Development involving the improvement of the automated driving AI.
    The in-game AI recognizes various course shapes and the ever-changing status of its surrounding cars, to determine the driving trajectory that will allow it to drive as fast as it can under those conditions. Furthermore the AI needs to match its driving operations to conform to a large variety of car models. The aim is to develop an automated driving AI which can drive faster and more human-like by improving this process.

    There is also development regarding special automated driving and beginning player driving assist features, used to adjust game difficulty and for in-game expressions, which will require communication with the Game Planner to advance the development.

    In addition, there will be involvement in technical development for machine learning such as "deep learning" technology, which will not only involve automated driving AI but also its application to various other subjects related to content development, and we are looking for persons who have the curiosity and drive to pursue this development.
