Google AI Challenge
We have some very exciting news for all the Campus Ambassadors. We are pleased to announce the 2010 Google AI Challenge, an artificial intelligence competition run by students, for students!
Have a look at the website, then send an email to Jeff Cameron (email@example.com) to bring the Google AI Challenge to your school! The best part: you don’t actually have to do anything. Just send an email, and Jeff will set it all up for you!
In the Google AI Challenge, people will learn the basics of how to write a program which plays Tron (aka light cycles). You can submit a simple working entry and see your name on the Global Leaderboard, all in less than five minutes.
Participants can submit their code as often as they like to watch it play against other students’ entries from around the world. The global rankings, as well as the leaderboard for each school, are updated in real time.
We need your help to spread the word at your school!
Here are some things you can do right now:
- Put the link to the contest website in your Gmail/Facebook/MSN status (www.ai-contest.com)
- Join the Facebook page, and tell your friends about the Google AI Challenge
- Put up posters at your school to advertise the Google AI Challenge (poster attached)
- Plan a Google AI Challenge Launch party at your school
For more information, visit the contest website at www.ai-contest.com and please feel welcome to send an email to Jeff Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org (he is the Campus Ambassador at the University of Waterloo). He is dying to hear your ideas!
