Call for Participation

The organizing committee is delighted to invite all of you to Artificial Intelligence (AI) World Cup 2018. AI World Cup 2018 is scheduled to take place on August 20-22th, 2018, on  KAIST Campus, Daejeon, Korea. This is the first world-wide competition of on-line soccer teams simulated by AI. The aim of this competition is to bring together researchers and developers of AI technology, both from academia and industry, and to prepare solutions involving AI technology for a rapidly evolving world. Participants will be provided with a package of instructions on how to use (on-line soccer players) and API for coding their game plans. Tutorial lectures and manuals with detailed instructions are available on the official website. All participants are requested to enter qualifying round(s) to be held in July of 2018. Only qualified participants can advance to the main round, hosted on KAIST Campus on August 20-22th. 

In addition to an on-line soccer competition, AI World Cup provides extended coverage of AI technology during the main round. AI commentators present analyses of game plans solely based on the soccer game displayed on a computer monitor. The suitability of such an analysis is measured by comparing it with the soccer teams’ game plans for that game. AI reporters write game summary reports, pointing out the key factors that have affected the outcome of a game.
