There are plans for various AI systems, but it hasn't been decided which ones will be added yet. Decision trees almost certainly, boids not sure.
Regarding myself, I have a masters in information technology that has never really seen any use, I mostly do freelance and remote work in gamedev fields. Windows, Visual Studio and Notepad++ are my primary tools. I read mostly technical books about gamedev or math, I also try to keep up with recent research papers and presentations to keep up to date. And I use coffee for productivity
