Welcome to IJCAI 2023, the 32nd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI)! IJCAI has remained the premier conference bringing together the international AI community to communicate the advances and achievements of artificial intelligence research. IJCAI holds online AI competitions each year on various topics of interest to the artificial intelligence (AI) community. For detailed information about the conference, please refer to the official webpage.
In recent years, techniques for Reinforcement Learning (RL) have matured rapidly yielding high-level performance in various tasks such as in games, robotics, advertising, etc. However, many of these carefully-trained agents have been criticized for their poor generalization abilities when applied to a slightly different task. Designing an adaptive AI that can perform equally well on series of tasks is still an open and challenge problem. To advance research in this field, we propose the IJCAI-23 AI-Olympics Competition as a subsequence of the IJCAI-22 AI-Olympics Competition held in 2022 that integrates multiple 2D competitive sports games with common objects on the map. Aligned with the previous competition, we plan to hold the competition on Jidi, an online platform for agent evaluation that collects submissions from participants and provides corresponding ranks.
The competition adopts multiple scenarios built on the AI-Olympics engine, a 2D Pythonic physical simulator created from scratch with simple dependencies. In these scenarios:
The IJCAI 2023 AI-Olympics Competition chooses six game scenarios. In each scenario:
Associate Professor at Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Nanjing Artificial Intelligence Research of IA
Software Engineer at Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences
