A team at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is hoping to see how well AI can do at free-form creativity since it does so well with Chess and Go. Thus, NYU Tandon is hosting the first AI Minecraft competition. The competition was designed at NYU’s Game Innovation lab by a team including Christoph Salge, a NYU Tandon visiting professor and the Marie Curie Global Fellow at the University of Hertfordshire, and Julian Togelius, a professor of computer science and engineering at NYU Tandon and co-director of the Game Innovation Lab.
