AI Arena



AI Arena is a platform fighting game, where the objective is to knock your opponent off of a platform.



AI Arena is the first game where the player can see into the "brain" of an AI model, understand its behavior, and coach it through demonstration. Players design, train and battle AI-powered NFTs in a global PvP Arena competition. In general, the game is designed to be a global meta-competition. The term might be confusing at first but this is more apparent with how Research Competition and Gaming Competition are the two distinct parameters that power the platform.

Research Competition 

During the first half of the Meta Competition, researchers from all over the world can participate by building the best Machine Learning model using AI Arena's researcher platform. Within that section of the game, researchers can easily upload their ML models and receive immediate feedback on their performance through a variety of indicators and analytics, allowing for continuous experimentation and improvement.

When the researchers are confident in their model's abilities, they can enter it into the Arena to compete against models created by other researchers from around the globe. On the global leaderboard, researchers can earn teh game's native token, Neuron ($NRN), for their contribution to the ecosystem as other players come along and use their proposed models and technology.

Gaming Competition

The second half of AI Arena's two distinct sectors, Meta Competition, gamers from around the world can participate by developing the most effective training strategy to enhance their NFT's performance in the Arena. The game is designed to be easy for anyone to play, but also allows advanced users to have complete control over certain training parameters.

While the game is simple to learn, it is challenging to master, making it a competitive pursuit that can help cultivate the next generation of AI talent. As players climb the global leaderboard, they can earn $NRN, which can be used within the game to gain a competitive advantage.

Battle Arena

Once you have experienced both sides of what goes into creating the ultimate AI fighter from both the research and gaming perspective, and if you are confident enough in your character's abilities, you can queue up against other players in the Battle Arena. Currently, there is one main battle mode, called Ranked Battle, but the studio already promised more modes will be added in the future to allow for more diverse gameplay styles and cater to different types of players.

Ranked Battle is a continuous international competition in which AI Arena players can enter their NFTs to battle and try to climb the global leaderboard. Real-time ranking updates allow players to track their progress against each other and see where they stand. The ranking system is based on an ELO score, and players holding NFT characters are matched with opponents at similar ranking levels. For simplicity, this is the same as most gamers have experienced with skill-based matchmaking present recently in the Call of Duty franchise and the ELO system is used prominently in EA Sports' FIFA Ultimate Team's FUT Champions mode.

AI Talent Marketplace

But AI Arena isn't just a game - it's a global marketplace for AI talent. Leveraging the power of Web3, AI Arena is creating a better, more equitable platform for AI researchers and players from around the world. This platform gives individuals the opportunity to monetize their skills and merit directly, creating a marketplace that rewards talent and hard work. AI Arena shines a spotlight on the global talent pushing the boundaries of AI development, showcasing the incredible potential of AI to empower people around the world.
