An Accurate Induction Method Of Player Ratings From Tournament Results

Competitive co-evolution has been successfully applied to breed artificial players. The fitness of players is evaluated through competition with other players. The estimation of the fitness (rating) of players is the computational bottleneck of this approach. It is therefore desirable to exploit as best as possible the information contained in the outcomes of played games. In this paper, we introduce an efficient induction method of player ratings from tournament results. We demonstrate empirically that the proposed formula gives more accurate results than the estimation formula that is traditionally used.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
