What's the AI Sports Challenge?

The AI Sports Challenge is a free AI programming tournament for developers of all levels with an interest in artificial intelligence. Developer teams across the globe program their own bot capable of autonomously competing in an AI multiplayer game for a chance to win prizes, job opportunities, and bragging rights.

The Challenge

In the upcoming tournament, you'll be tasked with programming a bot to play our original AI multiplayer game, 'Dungeons and Data Structures'. This is a 2-player Bomberman-like game where your objective is to take down your opponent and be the last bot standing.

Last year, 42 teams across the globe competed in Season 1 of Dungeons and Data Structures. This year, the game will feature an entirely new set of rules, game mechanics, and elevated level of competition!
Check out the Season 1 version on our GitHub:

Who can participate? How difficult will it be?


The challenge is free and open to any individuals around the globe. We'll help you get started with a step-by-step tutorial and all the resources you'll need to create your very first bot. From there, we welcome you to use any tools at your arsenal to improve your bot before play-offs!

What programming language can I use?


The game will be compatible with any scripting language of choice. However we'll only be able to provide starter templates for Python and other popular programming languages. Let us know what you're using over at our Discord.

Do I need to know AI/ML?


No, this challenge is all about your programming and problem solving skills. We've found previous submissions to be a mix of algorithmic as well as AI/ML-based approaches. But if you've already got some skills in AI/ML and think you can apply them in this challenge - go ahead!

Do I need a team?


For simplicity, we use the word 'team' to mean any 1 - 5 participants entering the tournament together. While we encourage you to team up with others, you absolutely can be a superstar and join the tournament on your own. All prizes are split between the team. Once you join the community Discord group, you can use the 'looking-for-team' channel to find other people who want to team up.
