There is a U of T-wide Pong AI Tournament being held this semester, run by DCS lecturer Michael Guerzhoy. This is an opportunity to get your feet wet with writing code for game AIs, become familiar with PyGame, and have your AI beat your friends' AIs at Pong!
You can participate individually or in a team of two. Prizes: (really cool-looking) Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals for each member of the teams that win first, second, and third places. Diplomas for teams that earn an Honourable Mention.
For more information visit the Pong AI Tournament website.
The deadline to enter is March 10, 2015.
