Come along and build an artificially intelligent agent that can play the popular game Angry Birds. 

This seemingly simple game is much harder to solve for Artificial Intelligence (AI) than games like Chess or Go. Beating the best human players in Angry Birds is one of the yet to be solved AI Milestones. Prof. Renz and his group are organising the annual Angry Birds AI competition, where the best AI agents are determined (see aibirds.org). 

During the ANU Open Day 2018, we will run an Angry Birds Human vs Machine Challenge where participants can test if they can beat the best Angry Birds AI agents. Everyone is invited to play 4 new Angry Birds levels for 10 minutes and will enter the leaderboard. At 1:30pm, the best four AI agents from this years competition will play the same levels for ten minutes. The best three humans will win prizes and so does everyone who is able to beat the best AI agents. 

Come, play and see if you are still better than AI. Note that our last Human vs Machine Challenge was won by someone who played Angry Birds for the first time, so everyone is welcome to participate – novice or pro.
