...after the poll, it is now time to go into action!
Have you ever wanted to build a good AI? a good AI that could challenge other AIs? This is the aim of this upcoming contest! Based on a java framework, a mini game simulation, you'll be able to program your own AI (in java) with a broad variety of techniques (novices as well as experts can find their interest in it). Once the AIs will be made, they will compete against e that will compete against each other and the one which performs the best wins! What do you think about it? interested?
So here it goes...
The contest will start in two weeks and all informations will be unveiled, the framework provided and an example shown. You'll have three weeks to build the best AI you can. ...Sadly, I can't give details about the challenge itself in order to not give some advantages. You'll have to wait until start date.
