Joe Crozier and Niko Savas placed in the top 8 teams at YHack (the Yale Hackathon), winning $750 for “crAIg”, an AI that teaches itself how to play Super Mario Bros. for the NES! crAIg uses genetic algorithms to “breed” itself for success, much like species evolve in nature. Through repeated trial and error, crAIg is able to teach itself to progress further and further in the game. The program starts with 0 knowledge of how the game works or what its purpose is, everything it knows it must teach itself.
