Dear Obstacle Tower Challenge participant(s),
We have received an amazing response to the challenge these past two months, with over 200 teams signed up and the top participants reaching an average of over nine floors solved by their agents!
*Due to some initial technical challenges related to automatic evaluation we have decided to extend the contest dates to ensure that all participants can make the best submissions possible. The new deadline for submission to Round 1 is April 30th. We have also extended the dates for Round 2, which will now be open for submissions from May 15th to July 15th. This will give everyone an additional month in each round to experiment with new ideas for training their agents. Please see the official rules here for more details: https://gitlab.aicrowd.com/unity/obstacle-tower-challenge-resources/blob/master/Rules.md
In summary, the new challenge dates will be:
Round 1: Feb 11 - Apr 30
Round 2: May 15 - Jul 15
Important: Please also note that you’ll need to agree to the updated terms with the new dates via the AICrowd webpage by clicking the challenge “participate” button again before making any new submissions to the challenge.
Hi Obstacle Tower Challenge contestants,
Per our contest rules, only the final submission made by each team will be accepted for evaluation at the end of each round. In the past, the leaderboard had incorrectly reflected the best submission. As of this morning, April 11, 2019, we have addressed this, and the leaderboard rankings now reflect the last submission (not the best). You may have noticed your ranking go up or down.
Please be sure that your final submission before the end of each round reflects your best work, and be sure to re-submit that work if necessary.
Obstacle Tower Team
