Louis Wardt
I joined the UCL AI Society at the start of this year. Early on I developed a fully automated online tournament system which allowed participants to develop their own AIs for Pacman and compete for points. After the event finished we asked people what they thought and their main criticism was that “it wasn’t long enough”.

It’s clear there is an appetite for fun and educational competitions. This is what my focus as Head of Development would be. I have already begun work on a new platform that would allow for the society to run tournaments where participants can train and compete with their AI agents for games such as Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe, Go, Pacman and many others. This project has a reach beyond just the society. We could easily involve other universities from around the world, getting them to take part in UCL AI Society hosted events. The system we create could be used for both long competitions and short term hackathons hosted either online or at UCL itself which would be a great social event. This project will likely be done in collaboration with members with the UCL Center for AI. I’d love to use my expertise to help bring other ideas to life that committee members might have.
