Final Rankings

Congratulations to this term's winner, Gábor Melis! Whereas the Google AI Challenge has traditionally been dominated by entries written in languages like C++, Gábor has solidly taken the top spot with an innovative algorithm. His entry is one of just 33 submissions written in Lisp, and is entitled bocsimacko. Congratulations Gábor!

A big congratulations also goes out to the runners up, _iouri_ and Slin-.-, as well as all the finalists in the top 100. With over 4600 submissions received, securing a spot in the top 100 was no easy task!

On behalf of Google and the University of Waterloo Computer Science Club, we would like to thank everybody who took part in the Google AI Challenge. This term was the best yet, with more than 4600 working entries submitted by people from 112 different countries. Thank you!

We would also like to thank all the people who generously volunteered their time and mad skills to make the Google AI Challenge happen.
