Hi! I am Philipp Matthes. I’m from Chemnitz (formerly Karl-Marx-Stadt) and currently live in Dresden. I study Diplom Informatik and am currently in the fifth semester. Dresden is a beautiful city. Dresden is not for nothing known as „Silicon Saxony“, because here are several large computer companies located, for example, Globalfoundries. I am an independent software developer, web designer and 3D designer. Since April 2018, I am employed as a tutor and developer at the Chair of Software Technology of TU Dresden. But even before my studies I already gained some experience. I worked for several months at the GOLIAT agency for communication and visualization as a 3D designer. In addition to my studies and my work, I develop apps and games and am interested in space travel, artificial intelligence, physics and many other scientific topics. But I also like dealing with philosophy and politics. Sport is also an important part of my life. I like to cycle, play badminton (also competitive) and do winter sports. Thank you for visiting my page!

Using Craig Reynolds Boids algorithm to create a more sustainable AI solution in the Halite 2 Challenge

I am very interested in artificial intelligence and machine learning. That’s why I joined the Halite Challenge. It was about developing a smart swarming intelligence. Many approaches have been found in the challenge. Also particularly interesting ones like Youtuber Sentdex’s solution (Machine Learning). My approach was classic, with heuristics and the so-called Boids algorithm. What…
