AI Programming Competition Announced

Thousand Parsec announced an AI competition.

One major prize and one minor prize will be awarded in each of the two categories:

* “Battle Points” – The AI which gains the most “battle points” via beating other AI into a bloody pulp.
* “Good Code” – The AI with the code judged to be the “best”.

It seems that the competition will involve a Thousand Parsec game server, and each competitor will face all other competitors in two separate types of battles. The “Good Code” competition will use the expected criteria: how easy is it to maintain, and how easy it is to use.

You can use any language, so long as it has an open source implementation that runs on Ubuntu Dapper. Get your entry in by March 1st, 2007!
