Steam Locomotive

On February 4th, Turing Scholars Neil Patil, Niels Kornerup, John Herrick, and Ryan Rice competed in Battlecode, MIT's premier AI programming competition. In Battlecode, teams of up to four have a month to program an army of virtual bots that face off against other teams in a Real-Time-Strategy style deathmatch.

Our team, Steam Locomotive, made it to the finals, where they traveled to MIT in Boston, Massachusetts, and placed 9th overall out of over 400 teams. A video of the final tournament can be viewed here. Congratulations to our students for their performance!
