The UC Berkeley GamesCrafters undergraduate research and development group was formed in 2001 as awatering holeto gather and engage top students as they explore the fertile area of computational game theory. At the core of the project is Gamesman, a system developed for strongly solving, playing and analyzing two-person, abstract strategy games (e.g., Tic-Tac-Toe or Connect 4) and puzzles (e.g., Rubik's Cube). Over the past nine years, more than seventy games and puzzles have been integrated into the system by over two hundred seventy-four undergraduates.
Pizza and soda will be served shortly before noon. Dr. Garcia's talk,
274 students can't be wrong!: GamesCrafters, a computational game theory
undergraduate research and development group at UC Berkeley, will begin
promptly thereafter. Everyone is welcome to attend!
