After the successful first edition of the Smart Bots Coding Challenge, we are back with the second one. In collaboration with LOCUS, we bring to you Smart Bots 2023. Smart Bots 2022 transformed into a platform for coding enthusiasts to meet, collaborate, and share ideas. Smart Bots 2023 aims to do the same but with a more complex challenge for fellow techies.

For us, Smart Bots is a kind of 4-month-long tech festival where we celebrate tech minds. In other words, it's a platform for all programmers to have fun and code under the same roof.

Here's what the previous year's participants have to say:

I like building AI stuff, and it was too much fun working on the bot.  Most days, and almost every weekend, I would think of new strategies, learn and implement cool algorithms, test, iterate, fail, and succeed. I learned a lot throughout the competition. For me, the knowledge I gained and the fun I had would be worth every single second I invested, even if I hadn't got the prize. But yeah, the prize is great. So go on, Hack Stuff!! - Bibek Panthi, Smart Bots 2022 Winner

I learnt a lot about AI and search algorithms. I did not imagine such capable and smart people are around us this whole time! Everyone motivated me even more to research to be better at algorithms. - Yubraj Sharma, Smart Bots 2022 Top 6 finalist
