Socialgorithm Architecture
Figure: Socialgorithm Architecture

The Socialgorithm platform is made up of:

  • Players: Code/AI written by competition participants to compete against others (e.g. a Battleships player)
  • Web UI: Interface that allows competition participants/admins to view/control player matching and game options.
  • Games: Servers that run games, processing moves/actions from Players, ensuring consistency and signalling game updates/end.
  • Tournament Server: Server that communicates with multiple Game Servers to start games or read results, and rank players in a tournament leaderboard.

All communication occurs over Websockets.

Socialgorithm provides a number of libraries that abstract Websocket client/server setup and communication, so that competition players can focus on writing the best algorithms, and game writers can focus on writing fun games.
