...after the poll, it is now time to go into action!

hi!

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.


Vital informations
------------------

programming language: java

start date: monday 15th november
deadline: sunday 5th december

recommended level: anyone

rules:
-Any freely available library / API / code can be used.
-You can work alone or in groups, even the whole community itself (then it would become a community challenge Wink, but in this case, we would need an agreement of each community).

Once ended, we encourage the winner to write a brief article explaining his work afterwards for everyone to read.

Only 19% of respondands to the poll actually seemed interested in and AI contest. 48% said they'd only want to observe and another 9.5% said it was a waste of time.

The discussion that followed the poll didn't manage to come up with anything like an agreed direction for the contest, what has suddenly changed?

I don't understand why releaseing the details early would be an advantage to people, since everyone will see the post, no-one will be disadvantaged by it, it just means that we can start coding a little earlier if we wanted to.

...i know, i know, the poll wasn't extraordinary. Let's say i think it's worth a try.  I have nothing to lose, so do they. As well, the majority of them said it depends a lot on the kind of challenge, so maybe some of them will like it.

...and the reason because i wait two weeks is that not everyone is a regular reader, maybe someone will see this next week or so. Therefore it would be unfair that some start now while others aren't informed about. Isn't it?

That's it, we'll see...
