[Announcement] Unity Obstacle Tower Challenge Extension

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.
