CodePoKE AI Competition

From April 30th to May 18th MSV Incognito, in co-operation with CodePoKE, will be hosting their 4th AI-Competition! We invite you all to a competition for fame, glory and …. obviously, rewards. The competition is designed to give every student, regardless of year, a chance at winning.

The focus of this competition is the game “Hunter Killer“, a 2-dimensional turn-based, hidden-information, multi-agent strategy game. Hunter Killer is a complex game and will most certainly test your AI skills and/or cunning to the limit. However, do not be intimidated by its complexity! To ensure that everyone can compete in this event, two lectures will be hosted by members from CodePoKE which outline various ways to approach the problem and detail AI techniques you could use. The game itself is fully implemented, and utility logic is provided to make implementing a bot as easy as possible.

During the competition, the CodePoKE office will be open every Sunday for students to sit together and work. For more information on the schedule, rules of the competition, or the contents of the presentations, please visit the AI-Competition website (http://ai.codepoke.net).

What will be expected of you?
– You will write a player that can play the game by itself.
– Have your player play / test against others.
– Try to attain as high of an ELO rating as you can.
– Be present for the finals on Thursday May 18th at CodePoKE (starts @ 16:00).

For any further questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact CodePoKE (info@codepoke.net), or visit the AI-Competition website: ai.codepoke.net
