CALL FOR PAPERS & AGENT SUBMISSIONS: IJCAI 2013 Angry Birds AI Competition, 6-9 August 2013 , Beijing, CHINA

http://www.aibirds.org

Angry Birds is a popular video game where players shoot birds in order 
to destroy pigs protected by complicated structures. The task of this 
competition is to develop an intelligent Angry Birds playing agent that 
is able to successfully play the game autonomously and without human 
intervention. The long term goal is to build AI agents that can play new 
levels better than the best human players. In order to successfully 
solve this challenge, participants can benefit from combining different 
areas of AI such as computer vision, knowledge representation and 
reasoning, planning, heuristic search, and machine learning. 
Successfully integrating methods from these areas is one of the great 
challenges of AI. 

Game Playing Software 
================== 

The organizers have provided a basic game playing software and a sample 
agent. Participants are free to adapt this software. The software can be 
downloaded at http://www.aibirds.org. On this website, we also offer a 
discussion forum for participants, benchmarks and other relevant information. 

Prizes 
===== 

The teams of the three best agents will receive a prize as well as a 
certificate. 

     * First prize: USD 1500 
     * Second prize: USD 1000 
     * Third prize: USD 500 

All participants of the finals will also receive a certificate. 

Symposium on AI in Angry Birds 
========================= 

During the competition, there will be an opportunity to present original 
scientific work related to the problems of developing an Angry Birds 
playing agent. Please refer to the Call for Papers at http://www.aibirds.org 

Man vs Machine Challenge 
==================== 

On 9 August 2013, everyone is invited to compete against the best AI agents. 
The winner of this challenge, man or machine, will receive USD 500 and 
a certificate.
