Description

9 Men’s Morris is a 2000 years old strategy game where players have millions of options to choose from. In this project we aim to build a Quantum Agent that can play the game. The structure of the game allows us to describe it with a Graph Network and we want to train it using a Quantum Simulator. We aim to have an agent running on a Quantum Simulator which human players can play against at the end  of CERN Webfest.

Come join us learning quantum computing!

Weekend Goals

This project commenced in last year's webfest, this year we aim to improve and extend it.
