Precompute

Method of charging interest in which the annual interest is either deducted from the face amount of the loan when the funds are distributed or is added to the total amount and divided into the regular payments.

Precompute

To calculate the annual interest owed on a loan by either deducting the annual interest from the face amount of the loan, or adding the compound interest together and dividing it out equally over 12 monthly periods. This means that the effective interest paid will be higher than the stated amount on the loan. Because of this, most jurisdictions require lending institutions using precomputation to express the interest rate in simple interest terms.

With optimization, the fraction of time spent computing array references is smaller, as optimizers in most cases replace most array address computations with a simple add by precomputing the offset between two consecutive elements of the array.
In precomputation, the load on the display subsystem is reduced because certain features can be calculated before they are needed--for example, the hidden surface problem can be partially solved by precomputing potentially visible sets of the models for sets of related viewpoints.

While AI techniques have previously been used to address game development concerns such as content generation and offline content analysis (such as precomputing navigation paths), this workshop aimed to provide the first forum for discussion that specifically foregrounded game design automation problems: human-machine cocreation of creating puzzles and maps with desirable properties, illuminating exploits in rule systems or mismatches between designer and player expectations through playtesting, and accelerating the feedback and design iteration cycle with incomplete prototypes.
