Backstory

Software engineer in Oregon, USA.

I'm using Battlesnake as a fun excuse to practice learning new programming languages, such as Elixir and Rust.

    This snake uses MCTS (Monte Carlo Tree Search) with a time-based cutoff. It has high latency because it tries to use the time provided for each turn to collect more samples/rollouts.

  • Rocket Scarf Junior

    This is my first attempt at a reinforcement learning snake. Highly experimental.

    Private Python House of Chris Vultr Reinforcement Learning v1.1 Latency

  • SpiralSnek (Retired)

    It goes to the edge and then spirals inward.

    Private Elixir Latency

  • StaticSnek (7x7)

    Just goes in the same loop no matter what. Almost a Hamiltonian circuit, but the board has an odd number of squares.
