Halite is an open source artificial intelligence programming challenge, created by Two Sigma, where players build bots using the coding language of their choice to battle on a two-dimensional virtual board. The last bot standing or the bot with all the territory wins. Victory will require micromanaging of the movement of pieces, optimizing a bot’s combat ability, and braving a branching factor billions of times higher than that of Go.
The grand prize winner wins an all expenses paid trip to NYC to compete in the next level of the game!
