The following project is an attempted continuation of the project described here: [url removed, login to view]
That project was successfully completed, and the result was an agent that was a top competitor in the University of Alberta's Computer Poker Competition. About a year ago progress on the project was discontinued. All of the computation was done with my computer hardware, but I do not know if the source code or other important resources for project continuation are there as well.
I would like to continue with a few similar ideas to the original project, if possible by building off of the work that we have already done. In order to do so I need someone that might be able to help determine whether or not the source code or enough information in some fashion is available, given what I still have (I have a playable agent, and some of the old computational programs still on the server), to continue on with the project by someone with the necessary skill and experience. I am not a programmer myself, so I don't know exactly what is necessary given what I still have.
If the above is possible, a project of greater size will be available.
Please see the original project linked above for a background on the type of work that might be possible in the future. Academic background and experience with optimization and AI necessary.
Academic and practical experience is important for a project of this nature. Familiarize yourself with the documents in the above link I posted. If the above pre-project is successful and there is enough material to continue work, we will then move forward with new projects that are like the original.
