Pacwar

blending; noun
A class competition using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms in the Artificial Intelligence class (COMP 440) at Rice University.
 
This is the name of the class competition in my Artificial Intelligence class. It is a competition where we try to find the best “gene” using machine learning algorithms that we learn throughout the semester. It is a blend of the very popular game “PacMan” and “war”. This is because the creatures we are finding the best gene for looks like the iconic PacMan character, and we make them “fight” against one another to see how well our gene performs.
Etymology : Blending of “Pacman” and “war”.
