The AI Snakes competition is based on the well-known game of Snake, where one snake has to chase apples in order to grow. However, for this contest the game was rebuilt by a team from Innopolis University to include two agents. Our members learned a lot about implementing algorithms such as breadth-first search and minimax with alpha-beta pruning. Furthermore, a lot of creativity was used in order to make sure that the AdderBoaCobra won as many games as possible.
