Artificial Intelligence Competition
General Competition Information
This month's competition is all about artificial intelligence! Whether it's a chatbot, an assistant, a game, you name it: get creative with the possibilities of AI and build anything you like!
So what do we mean with AI exactly? In this competition, your program must be able to do something on its own / demonstrate some level (any level) of intelligence. Whether you decide to achieve that by writing simple if-statements, or challenge yourself by using NLP or NLTK, it's all up to you! As long as it's a working bot that shows some kind of intelligence. You can decide what the bot does, so you can be as creative as you want (as long as it's appropriate).
If you need inspiration, here's an example that recognizes drawn numbers using neural networks. More examples:
When you're happy with the result, submit it on the challenge board.
Competition starts: Monday, Jan 21 12:01 PM UTC
Competition ends: Monday, Feb 11 12:01 PM UTC
3 winners will be selected based on the amount of votes given by users, and by judgment of the staff (whether it's creative, has a nice user experience, and so on).
First Place : $100 Amazon Gift Card
Second Place: $50 Amazon Gift Card
Third Place: $25 Amazon Gift Card
In order to be considered, your bot:
- Must be hosted on Repl.it
- Must be friendly and appropriate

Best of luck!
Fellas, fellas. Real talk. Let us start a pay-it-forward type thing by commenting ideas for an AI to help each other out. I'll go first :)
-Maze navigation (like a lab rat sort of thing) (this is probably what I'll aim for)
-some sort of AI-based opponent for a game (i.e. pong) that learns from a particular player's playstyle
I hope at least one of these helps someone. Now, all we need is an AI that comes up with ideas for AI concepts (hey, that's not such a bad idea...)
@davwheat this is very good. here is an idea to try: an autocomplete that is designed to make the user burst out laughing!!! e.g. "have you seen my " --> "beans" "whales" "muffins" etc. what is funniest? make a way of voting things to the top perhaps? also of course implement phrase prediction not just single word completion (like Gmail now is doing). <3 jacob
I am making a simple Text-Based AI, his name is Jerry. He will have emotions displayed by emojis. He will tell you jokes, and will hopefully tell you a scary story. With witty comments, and a fun personality, Jerry will hopefully make you laugh, and help you learn. I hope to win this competition with Jerry.
BTW: I am using Python 3.0.
Currently working (with a friend) on an evolution algorithm (https://www.techopedia.com/definition/32751/evolutionary-algorithm) to solve almost any type of cipher. All you need to do is write the code that generates random keys for your type of cipher (e.g. in Vigenere, it should generate a random string of letters; in Playfair the same but with no repeated letters), as well as the decrypt function, and you're good to go! We will provide some presets (including Vigenere and Playfair). What do you think? Any ideas?
i wish i knew how to do stuff like this, i just don't know where to start! oh well. :/
