Battle of Bots
« on: September 10, 2015, 10:15:35 am »
Battle of Bots is HackerEarth's flagship Artificial Intelligence Challenge. It's one of a kind challenge that will run for 7 days. There is only one problem statement in the challenge - the game for which you have to write a bot.

You will be given a two-player game and you have to write a bot that will play that game against other bots. Your bot has to adhere to the rules of the game given in the problem statement, and play against the other bot.

While the challenge is live, you will have one system generated bot against which you can test your bot. The default bot will be a very basic bot, if you win against that bot it doesn't mean you will win against other players also.

Also you can challenge other people who have submitted their bots to play against you. Once the challenge is over, all the bots that have been submitted will be played against other bots in a tournament. The bot that wins the tournament will be declared the winner.

There are great prizes to be won -

1st Prize- $100 Amazon gift card
First Runner Up- $80 Amazon gift card
Second Runner Up- $60 Amazon gift card

Top 5 winners will receive HackerEarth T-shirt

This seems to be a computer programming contest,
in any programming language, where the contestants
are developers who write source code in an online
editor and then submit it.

If this is so, I may not understand how "bot" applies.
Are developers being referred to as bots these days?
In any case, I just signed up to show my support.

Any kind of contest is a good one as it encourages people to work on AI/chatbots more often.

Apparently, the code you write once tested and approved will be the basis for your Bot entry to compete against another bot in the "Two player game", what ever that turns out to be.

More of a programmer's showdown than not. Should prove interesting given all the programming languages available.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
