We had 440 individual and team submissions to hunger games, many of them exceptional examples of game theory analysis and machine learning. Way to go all you Brilliant folks!

Over the next two weeks we will be examining each submission and actually running the game, letting all your algorithms duke it out. After the game is run (or during, if it takes a very long time - there are some complex algorithms!), we will post the current standings. The final results will be posted before September 1st, and most likely well before. We will then be in contact with the finalists for their short interviews, after which we will award the prizes and t-shirts.

In the meantime - in the Brilliant discussion forum there is now a Hunger Games strategy week discussion, where all of you can discuss what you did and why if you so desire. While this is a little like shopping after you bought something, it can still be a lot of fun to toss around your ideas. Please upvote those posts that give strategies you like, and we'll see in the end how those strategies actually did!

TopNewestWill there be any future competitions in similar areas of game theory, AI, and ML? Also perhaps for prize money?

Log in to reply

There most likely will be future competitions. What areas they are in is yet to be determined. Suffice to say though, we value diversity of mind at Brilliant so the competition topics will be varied.

If I do not win or am not successful will I still be able to find out how I placed for example 300/440?

Log in to reply

Yes, there will be a list published of everyone's results.

Everyone goes into one big tournament.

Will you be running the tournament multiple times, since the results will probably not be deterministic?

it looks like the conversation venue has shifted:

It's almost the 1st. Update?

If I may speculate, I think that they encountered a massive draw and several players having 1.0 in reputation. Just a guess though! ;)

Log in to reply

After one slack it would be impossible to have a 1.0 rep. A draw is plausible though.

Log in to reply

Oh and I kinda assumed just one game with rounds till only one is left... haha That is why I thought about the draw due to an equilibrium.

I haven't received any e-mail. Have you sent any?

Log in to reply

And where are the final results?

Log in to reply

I noticed that my teammates are not getting the update e-mails I am getting. It could be them not checking their junk mail boxes, but are update e-mails only sent to the e-mail of the account that submits the code? Or, rather, to get straight to the point of my fears, how can we check that we have submitted our team details correctly now that the submission page is closed?

Log in to reply

send me a message from the account you registed on Brilliant with and I'll check for you

Excuse the late reply. How do I send messages here? I can't seem to find any messaging-related buttons on the interface or the profile page.

I was wondering when the competition will be officially "closed"- after results, after prizes are distributed, or what?

Log in to reply

It's closed now, in that there are no submissions being accepted. The competition game itself might live on as a game to play with friends, as an ongoing challenge to find the "best" algorithm, etc. We don't know yet.

Log in to reply

That would be cool, playing with friends and having the game live on as a more complex Prisoner's Dilemma.
