In this 2017 GDC talk, Bobby Anguelov, Mika Vehkala, and Ben Weber outline core principles to get the most out of your behavior trees while avoiding common issues.

It's a useful deep dive into an important topic for today's game devs. Since its introduction over 10 years ago, the behavior tree has been a staple of game AI, and there are a whole host of different ways to implement them.

This talk outlines what some professional AI devs view to be some core principles for getting the most out of your behavior trees while avoiding common issues. It's a great talk with lots of practical takeaways for game devs, especially AI programmers, and it's now available to watch for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
