Google AI Challenge is a competition organize by University of Waterloo Computer Science Club and Sponsor by Google. The competition will test competitor’s AI skill in writing algorithm to beat others in Tron game. It sound just like those Robotic competition but this one is in virtual world purely with software/programming only.
Each competitor will represent their own countries and fight with others. It sound very much like Microsoft Imagine Cup, Algorithm category (too bad the category was already drop). If you think you are great in AI, why not give it a try, you might become the hero of the country. 🙂
