5th International Ai Werewolf Competition
5th International AI Werewolf Competition
Can computers play Social Deduction games, such as “Werewolf” and “Among Us”, where the challenge is not so much in strategy or tactics, but rather in being able to manipulate other players through negotiation and deception?
To answer this question, we hold the AI Werewolf (AIWolf) competition , where participants are invited to submit computer programs that can play the game of Werewolf (aka Mafia) against each other.
In 2023, the 5th International AI Werewolf Competition will be held at the INLG 2023, from 11 to 15 of September in Prague.
We provide three divisions as follows.
- Protocol Division: In the protocol division, the AIWolf agents which communicate with each other via the AIWolf protocol, compete for win rate. Agents are evaluated by their average win rate in 15-player games and 5-player games. This division is divided into a qualifying competition and a final one. In the qualifying competition, all participants play against each other, and 15 agents with the highest win rate can advance to the final competition as finalists. In the final competition, finalists play against each other as many times as possible until the difference in win rate becomes significant. The registration deadline of the protocol division is July 21st, 2023 (Anywhere on Earth). For more information, please visit the web site of this division.
- Natural Language Division: In this division, participants must build an artificial intelligence agent that can play the werewolf game as humans do, using natural language. Participants in this division will be evaluated by a panel of judges, who will grade the subjective quality of the dialog generated by the agent. Agents must communicate in Japanese or English. The registration deadline of the natural language division is June 30th, 2023 (Anywhere on Earth). For more information, please visit the web site of this division.
- Infrastructure Division: In the 5th International AI Werewolf Competition, we open an infrastructure division to evaluate the contribution to the development of AI Werewolf such as sample agents, libraries for making agents, alternative game servers, cool game viewers, etc. Creations submitted to this division will be evaluated by the participants and organizers of the AI Werewolf competition, and a vote will choose the best contribution of this year. The registration deadline of the infrastructure division is August 18th, 2023 (Anywhere on Earth). For more information, please visit the web site of this division.
