Overview

The StarCraft Data Mining project is part of an effort to automatically aquire knowledge about expert RTS gameplay by mining thousands of professional StarCraft replays. By mining replays, it is possible to predict an opponent's strategy and also predict when the player will execute the strategy. The results of this project are presented in the publications section.
