Rémi Coulom's Home Page
Welcome to my home page. I am Associate Professor (Maître de Conférences) of
computer science at the
Université Lille 3, and a member of the SequeL research group, in Lille,
France. My main topic of research is artificial intelligence in games. Some of
my software is available for sale thanks to a partnership with Unbalance Corporation. My e-mail
address is R e m i . Coulom at univ-lille3.fr.
