Projects

Pommerman Organizer and Contributor

Pommerman is a multiagent reinforcement learning game environment. One of the goals of Pommerman is to provide an environment in which agents are benchmarked against other agents. Agents are pitted against each other or required to work in teams.

AI and ML have been interests of mine since the late 90s. When this project presented itself, I jumped on board immediately!

I first started contributing then was brought on as the main organizer. I helped to maintain the website, documentation, graphics engine, the Discord community, and the aesthetics of the project.

The team and project were selected to be in the competition track for the 2018 Neural Information Processing Systems Conference. We were also selected to present at the 2018 AIIDE Multi-Agent Workshop. This project has given me the opportunity to publish my first paper. Pommerman: A Multi-Agent Playground
