Waterloo / Google AI-Tron Challenge Results
The goal of this challenge was to write a computer-program capable of playing the game Tron.
The rankings for my Ruby bot:
- 146 / 708 Total Entries
- 3 / 23 Ruby Entries
- 16 / 88 Canadian Entries
The rankings were determined using tournament play along with the Elo rating system.
Early non-minmax versions of my bots are available on github. The winning C++ bot source is also available; as is a brief explanation by the author.
I enjoyed this challenge immensely. My Ruby programming skills also benefited from this Code Kata.
Update: A detailed examination of the winning bot. And if you’re brave, a Haskell bot explained. ;)
Also: The tron battle continues on dhartmei’s server.
