An online AI (Artificial Intelligence) Competition is the talk of the town for a lot students and geeks alike.
This competition is asking participants to code an artificial controller based on evolutionary neural networks, genetic programming, fuzzy logic, temporal difference learning, human ingenuity, hybrids of the above mentioned, etc.
The coding language will be JAVA and the game will be based on Infinite Mario Bros game by Markus Person. The game has the added benefit of endless random level generation.
The AI who completes the most levels WIN! They will have a league ranking system to determine the winners and will even allow for algorithms to be downloadable. The price money is a whooping 500USD as well as bragging rights.
Sounds like super fun :)

Maybe I should give it a try.
