Course Projects

Project: Building a Othello Game with Game Tree and Alpha-Beta Pruning

Problem statement:

Build a Othello game which enables a game between two program with AI implementations. To extend the space for creativity, the checker for Othello game has been extended to 16 * 16.

Project requirement: (detailed requirement)

• Represent the game tree appropriately
• Design 2 heuristic evaluation functions for the game tree, each of which is registered as xxxxxxx-1 and xxxxxxx-2
• The AI should be able to response at the given time limited (otherwise, it would lose the game)
• Writting the report discussing the reason for your design of the two functions and the difference in terms of the performance of them in the game

Hand-in materials include:

• The report
• Source code

Submissions:

• Deadline: 20:00 June 30, 2014
