Hey all. I'm not sure if I should have posted this in the lounge or not.
A friend told me about MIT's Battlecode competition. It's an AI programming competition.
It's nature and rules really interested me, and although I've never programmed AI before, I am really interested in joining it.
I know it's late for me to compete this year. I've majored in Robotics, so I have some basic AI knowledge, but since programming was my main passion, I went into mobile development, so my knowledge hasn't really improved.
My question is: is it worth the effort to train for it and apply next year? Will this competition help me with my AI skills? And do I have the skills for it?
Also, what do you think of this competition as a whole?
