This is for people who enjoy problem solving and creating a strong AI for a popular game. For many, this would be unfeasible since "developing" an API for such a game would be a considerable roadblock. I've gotten rid of this roadblock for you.
This is, I admit, a very niche project. But if it's something you are into, it will be a very fun project to work on. What will you get out of it? Whatever you put into it, and probably you'll learn more about the AI field. I don't have all the answers, nor do I expect you to. It will most likely involve some research. This is something I am doing purely for fun, and it would be great to have people to bounce ideas off of.
