Thousand Parsec AI Programming Competition!

by Mithro

I'm happy to announce that Thousand Parsec is running a AI Programming Competition. There are quite a few really cool prizes and a good place to pick up some Thousand Parsec swag!

If you have any interest in AI programming I would recommend giving it a go. Thousand Parsec games offer a very different environment for AI's from a standard game. As well, AI's are standard clients, so it can't cheat even if it wanted to.

You are free to use any Open Source language to write your AI, however as Python, C++ and Ruby already have semi-working protocol libraries they are a good place to start.

You can find out more information about the competition at the following URL. http://www.thousandparsec.net/tp/comp.php.
