Richard Evans (born 23 October 1969) is an artificial intelligence (AI) research scientist at DeepMind. His research focuses on integrating declarative interpretable logic-based systems with neural networks,[1][2][3] and on formal models of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason.[4][5][6]

Previously, he designed the AI for a number of computer games. He was the co-founder, along with Emily Short, of Little Text People, developing real-time multiplayer interactive fiction. Little Text People was acquired by Linden Lab in January 2012 for an undisclosed sum.[7] At EA/Maxis, he was the AI lead on The Sims 3.[8] He also designed and implemented the AI for Black & White, for which he received a number of awards.[9][10][11][12]
