The Artificial 'Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment StarCraft AI Competition or AIIDE StarCraft AI Competition is a recurring annual tournament that has been held yearly since 2010. It is currently organized by Michael Buro and David Churchill[1] in affiliation with the University of Alberta, Canada. Together with CIG and SSCAIT it is one of the three big AI tournaments for Brood War AI. In number of games played AIIDE is in fact the largest by some margin.

The 2017 tournament is held at Memorial University of Newfoundland in September.


In 2010 the AIIDE did not just do a big round-robin tournament - separate 'skills' were tested. It should be stressed that the AIIDE has a greater focus on AI instead of the coding of build orders, as the SSCAIT does.

Since 2011 all bots play several round-robins. No second stage or knock-out matches are played. It's just the bot with the biggest win percentage that is declared the winner. AIIDE requires bots to publish their source code, so some bots don't enter.
