We will be unraveling the Luigi - Marth matchup in Super Smash Bros Melee. SSBM has become incredibly optimized in the 20 years since its release, and we will talk about the process of distilling a competitive game to some foundation, build some data structures to model system on top of that foundation, and then implement various machine learning algorithms to estimate the options available to either player at any given game state. Finally, we'll find out what this tells us about how we can train our own brain to respond automatically and optimally. Led by Kush Arya.
