Computer games have gained attention as a testbed for research in AI and related disciplines early already. A recent addition to the set of games that is being used in this regard is Angry Birds. It offers several interesting aspects in terms of research such as reasoning about physical effects and qualitative spatial reasoning, to name just two. The KBSG has recently engaged in this new testbed, participating as Team Akbaba in the Angry Birds AI Competition founded in 2012.
As our first mission, we will participate in the 2013 Angry Birds AI Competition held at IJCAI-13 in Bejing, China.
