Google AI Challenge 2010

Tags: ai, lisp, Date: 2010-02-11

Tron is a fun little game of boxing out the opponent and avoiding crashing into a wall first. The rules are simple, so the barrier to entry into this contest is low. Thanks to aeruiqe, who made the Common Lisp starter pack, it took as little as a few hours to get a very bare-bones algorithm going. It's doing surprisingly well: it is number 23 on the leaderboard at the moment with 43 wins, 2 losses and 9 draws.
