Decided to start a side project as refresher for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
They always say that if you want to learn something, building a game is the best way to go. Below is a video demo of the mini game that I created using excel.
-It’s based on the game called Salpakan(game of the generals).It is basically a cross between chess and battleship.
-the rules is fully incorporated.
-AI is in place, you can see how P1 piece move from cell to cell.
-Still a crappy AI, need to revise the algorithm. Currently, I’m just ranking the piece based on the position in the board and incorporate randomness on the direction of the movement.
-will try to improve the AI by building a move datasets then evaluate the move instead of the position of the piece.
-player Vs player is something that I will look into as well.
-since this is a side project, will post some more update once I make more progress
