Challenge Introduction

Sharif Artificial Intelligence Challenge 2016

Sharif AI Challenge is a student programming contest in which competitors will compete for the game designed by our technical team, and challenge other teams to win and go up the ladder. This competition was originally titled "JavaChallenge", but during it's 8th year we've decided to add support for C++ and Python. Hence, the name "AIChallenge".
The only pre-requisite to enter this competition is familiarity with one of the aforementioned programming languages. But obviously, knowledge of algorithmic thinking and artificial intelligence will be a great asset for any of the participating teams. You can see participation rules here and last year's documents here.
Hope to see you soon.
