Running scoreboard for the finals?

Postby Scryer » Wed Dec 07, 2011 5:02 pm

I notice the Contest Schedule at http://aichallenge.org/ says "The length of the final tournament has not yet been determined but is expected to last less than one week. Upon completion the contest winner will be announced and all results will be publically available."

Given the intense interest in the "horse race" aspect, I hope this doesn't mean that the final tournament will be totally dark until the results pop out of a black box at the end. Is the current plan that the rebooted "Current Rankings" pages will be live during this phase?

I second Scryer. Any response from contest organizers?

Most likely all rankings will stay live throughout the finals.

There has been some thought of hiding the top of the rankings for a period at the very end of finals, but even that is unlikely to happen at this point.

Isn't one week too short for good convergence?

I doubt that one week will be a problem. It shouldn't take long to prune many obvious losers. Bots above 1500 or so won't avoid stepping on their own... umm... antennae. Purging bots that gather no food unless it's due north of the hive would kill half the population by itself, I think. If half the survivors were eliminated after each three or six rounds down to 128 or so credible candidates there ought to be plenty of time left to sort the potential winners.

I've toyed with the idea of looking at stats for matches on the different maps in use. That is, for each game on a map calculate the correlation coefficient between the final placement of the bots and the highest skill level that bot has achieved within the last two weeks. Averaging these should tell you how well that map predicts the true skill of the bots playing on it. It seems to me the maps with low predictive value could be de-emphasized during the weeding-out phase so that an unlucky run of three "bad" maps wouldn't ruin a pretty good bot's chances -- I would guess that "cluster-fun" maps with densely-packed single hives would correlate relatively poorly with skill, for example.
