EAAI NSG Challenge: Parameterized Poker Squares
|Parameterized Poker Squares
Given a shuffled deck,
25 cards are
individually dealt and placed into a 5-by-5 grid.
Each row and column is scored as a Poker hand according to a point system.
Challenge: Create a computer Poker Squares player that can play Poker Squares
given any point system!
- 5/27/15: Announcements:
- This is the latest distribution of the base code (documentation)
with only a minor bug fix to PokerSquares.java main method demo code. If teams would like to develop in a language
other than Java and the faculty mentor is willing to provide a Java
interface to such code, I will try to accommodate.
- Deadlines have been finalized:
- August 15, 2015:
Parameterized Poker Squares players (one per team) are due via email to
email@example.com (Subject: Parameterized Poker Squares Challenge Submission).
These must meet base code interface specifications.
- September 15, 2015:
Optional research papers on such players by student-faculty teams are due for submission to the
EAAI symposium via the
AAAI paper submission system. (More details are to come.)
- If you've not already done so, please register your team.
Your student team members would have recently received these announcements
if I have their names and contact information.
- Early testing: As an informal means of early
evaluation, teams are invited use
- edit the code, substituting your player for "RandomPlayer",
- run the code (<= 11 hours), and
- email me the last
comma-separated-value (CSV) line of your output by
June 15th, 2015 (Subject:
“Parameterized Poker Squares Early Testing”).
- Soon thereafter, I will distribute anonymous statistics on players’
performance for the different scoring systems of the testing.
- 11/19/14: How to introduce the Parameterized Poker Squares Challenge to
your faculty and students:

details if you're interested!
