Like Pool and Computer Programming? Have We Got A Tournament For You!

If you can write software and like pool, this may just be the competition for you! The Fourth Annual Computational Billiards Championships (ICBC-11) will be held in July and August of 2011, with the finals taking place during the AAAI-11 Conference in San Francisco from August 7-11, 2011. Entry is free and remote participation is possible, so you do not have to travel to the finals.

The ICBC-11 is designed to advance research in computational pool and give researchers a place to compare and test their ideas. Software programs will compete in a simulated game of pool, deciding automatically which shot to attempt in any situation to see which program performs the best.

For further information, visit the tournament website.

About Me

Las Vegas, Nevada
I love pool! Especially cues...I have over 35 cues personally and seem to find a new reason to get one all the time. I started to support my cue buying habit and I love it!
