AIUR (Artificial Intelligence Using Randomness) is an AI for StarCraft: Brood War.

The main idea is to be unpredictable by making some stochastic choices. The AI starts a game with a "mood" randomly picked up among 5 moods, dictating some behaviors (aggressive, fast expand, macro-game, ...). In addition, some other choices (productions, timing attacks, early aggressions, ...) are also taken under random conditions.

Learning is an essential part of AIUR. For this, it uses persistent I/O files system to record which moods are efficient against a given opponent, in order to modify the probability distribution for the mood selection.

AIUR vs Human

Two games against Bakuryu. Unfortunately, AIUR chose some cheese/daring strategies, so these games are not regular macro-games.
