Characters and Organisms

Character AI is an AI "living in the game world." Just as humans live in the real world, game characters live in the game world.

It is important to mention here that environment and intelligence are relative.

Complex intelligence is required in a complex environment. On the other hand, in a simple world, it is not so necessary to possess complex intelligence.

Some think that humans evolved because of the complications of the world, such as the evolution of other organisms. It was necessary to gain comprehensive intelligence in order to survive in the environment.

Intelligence must adjust the relationships of the body and the various worlds surrounding it. Thus, Character AI needs a comprehensive intelligence (strong AI) rather than an AI with a single function (weak AI).
