One of the first things people did with computers was to make them play intellectual skill games—it was such fun that we never stopped. In this interactive session (to which you must bring a laptop and strong programming skills in a programming language of your choice), we will construct a computer player for a very simple strategy game such as "Goofspiel":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goofspiel, "Chomp":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chomp or "Hexapawn":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexapawn.
In just 1.5 hours, I will help you craft a computer game AI that will consistently beat you and your friends. In the process, you will learn about how computers play games, including some tools you can use to build AIs for more complicated games.
