Halite II Launches October 23

Two Sigma is excited to announce that on October 23rd, 2017, Halite II will be available to play.

Halite is an initiative created by Two Sigma in 2016 and run with the help of Cornell Tech as an artificial intelligence programming challenge where players build bots using the coding language of their choice to battle on a two-dimensional virtual board.

The Halite competition is a fun way to learn and apply AI, machine learning, and other advanced algorithms by writing smart bots in a collaborative, challenging game setting. Designed for coding enthusiasts of all levels of experience and open to the public, Halite has created an engaging game environment to learn, write, and visualize code in action. Halite was created as a Two Sigma open source project for community outreach and education.

The 2017-2018 season will run October – January.  Contact halite@halite.io with any questions or join the Discord chat to connect with the Halite community.
