Each robot played against all the other robots, and the total points were tallied to identify a winner. Eventually, Gambit from University of Washington won the championship with flying colors (or is it really flying arms). The video below was made by the winning team in celebration of their triumph. VERY INTERESTINGLY, part of me and my voice were captured in this video as well, proving that I was actually there!! So here's your challenge of the day: see if you can find me in the video! The video also showed a match between a kid (rumored to be a world-ranked player) and Gambit toward the end, but I don't know who actually won.
Gambit's journey to Championship
In each and every AAAI conference (at least for the last few years), there's always a robot competition and the competition is always great fun! I am so looking forward to next year's competition. Now I just have to write a good paper before the submission deadline and hope it gets accepted....
