    The Game AI Programmer will mainly be responsible for development to improve the autonomous driving AI in the game.
    The in-game AI recognizes various course/road shapes and the continually changing environment around the vehicle, determines the best driving trajectory to drive through at the fastest speed, and performs driving operations that meets a large variety in car models. By improving these processes, we aim to develop an autonomously driving AI that can drive faster, and more human-like.
    There is also development work relating to the adjustment of game difficulty, and special automated driving sequences for visual choreography, as well as driving assist features for beginner players. For this it is necessary to communicate closely with the game planners in going forward with the development.
    We also aim to utilize and develop mechanical learning techniques such as deep learning, to utilize in not only for autonomously driving AI but also to apply to other issues involving content production, and we hope to find candidates that have the curiosity and drive to succeed in this type of development.
