General Information

What is a Computer Hex Bot? Any computer program that is designed to play the board game Hex on the computer. Participants (individually or in teams) will build a computer program capable of playing Hex, subject to some constraints below. This bot can use any method of playing you want. It can perform search, use big neural networks, or incorporate human-determined rules. Bots must communicate with the terminal via a pre-defined set of inputs & outputs.

We have access to GPUs!
