On 1/29 11:30-12:30, attend the department colloquium presenting
this challenge. We will form teams of 2-3 students thereafter.
By 2/20 at the beginning of class, teams will submit players that
must beat the performance of a greedy strawman implementation.
By 3/30 at the beginning of class, teams will submit players that
must significantly improve upon previous performance.
By 4/29 at the beginning of class, teams will make final submissions
to be entered in a class competition.
Students interested in possible summer research to improve upon
our best results should contact Professor Neller. Towards the end
of the summer is the deadline for an international competition for the
best Parameterized Poker Squares player. Publication and
conference presentation is possible.
