HOW ARE WE DOING?

April 2020. University’s corridors seem deserted. No sounds coming from laboratories or lecture rooms can be heard. From time to time one can bump into someone passing by wearing mask and saying hello from a distance. The pandemic has had a great impact on the everyday life of our university.

OUR IT STUDENTS WIN A CODING COMPETITION

‘Ocean of Code’ is a name of a programming competition in the field of artificial intelligence, which took place on CodinGame platform. In the contest, participants had to write programmes that competed against programmes written by other participants in a game proposed by the organisers. The idea was taken from a strategic board game ‘Captain Sonar.’ The goal of each programme was to manoeuvre a submarine in such a way that it attacked other submarines while remaining invisible to them at the same time. Contestants representing the University of Wroclaw took first place in this competition.
