One of the biggest frustrations with getting into AI, is understanding the basic algorithms. As most information sources out there expect you to already understand them. Inspired by my own struggles in AI, I gave an interactive demo explaining the A Star (*) Pathfinding Algorithm from the ground up.
If you want the slides I’ve hosted them up on GitHub. I recommend taking a loot at them, as you can play around with A Star (*) to help learn the algorithm better.
If you have any questions on A Star (*) leave them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
