2K BotPrize for 2010 decided

Monday, 02 August 2010

Tags:

The third 2K BotPrize competition has just been decided in Copenhagen, Denmark at the 2010 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games.

Computers are superbly fast and accurate at playing games, but can they be programmed to be more fun to play - to play like you and me? People like to play against opponents who are like themselves - opponents with personality, who can surprise, who sometimes make mistakes, yet don't blindly make the same mistakes over and over. Once again the competition asked: Can a computer be programmed to seem to have personality, fallibility and cunning? Well, not quite yet! But, in their best performance so far, the bots have narrowed the humanness gap to a slender span.
