The AI Contest is back! Your mission will be to program a robot to play a simple game for two players. The robots will compete against each other and there will be prizes for the authors of the best artificial intelligences. This year, we're keeping last year's game: the Laser Lighthouses game. You can check out the spec, game engine, and examples in this repository.
The bots will run under Linux in a separate process with communication via stdio. The game will be played turn-by-turn (not in real time). The bots may be developed in any programming language that is available in the official Ubuntu 13.04 repositories, and a README with the list of dependencies and build instructions must be included. You'll find an example written in Python in the GitHub repo linked above.
