Swarm Intelligence Cup
AI through Emergence
Beta Phase Timeline
Intelligence from Swarms
Achieving human-level AI requires crucial elements that are currently absent from state-of-the-art AI systems. A prime aspect of human intelligence, and life on Earth in general, is the manifestation of complex behavior through countless simple cells. The Swarm Intelligence Cup is designed to explore the role of collective behavior in designing intelligent systems.
Your Mission (in short)
Spark the beginning of a new form of intelligence by designing the agents of your swarm. Only swarms capable of exploring their environment and learning how to exploit its features will flourish. It is your challenge to form a surviving swarm!
Join the Public Beta!
November 10 - December 17, 2023
We’re excited to unveil the Swarm Intelligence Cup (SIC) — a groundbreaking challenge in the domain of AI, diverging from typical machine learning approaches. With a public beta round, our intent is to merge the creative talents of the AI community to establish a dynamic, community-driven project!
At the heart of the competition is a swarm simulation framework coded in Python that is open-source and available on Github. Participants can script their own agent behaviors and guiding their swarm within the simulation. In order to establish a sound Cup framework, the goals of the beta are to:
- Develop Unique Agent Behaviors: Flex your coding muscles and invent fascinating, efficient swarm behaviors based on the many skills available.
- Creating benchmark swarms: Develop and refine powerful swarm capabilities, setting benchmarks for future agent-based modeling innovations.
- Enhance the Simulation: Collaboration is key. We invite you to actively refine, optimize, and expand the simulation framework.

3rd, 4th & 5th Place
As a participant, you will be granted access to the swarm simulation code on our Lab42 Github repo where you can sript the behavior of your agents in Python. While the competition-spirit is upheld, we encourage sharing insights and working together to bolster the simulation. Your feedback is essential to improve both the simulation framework and the world specifications over time!

In this contest, swarms go head-to-head to see whose agents are best at adapting to their environment and utilizing a diverse skill set: Attack & defend, merge items for upgrades, manage energy resources, reproduce, communicate, and more!
