<h1>The Tactical Amulet Extraction Bot</h1>
<p>
This is the homepage of TAEB, the Tactical Amulet Extraction
Bot for <a href="http://nethack.org/">NetHack</a>. TAEB is
a framework for constructing a variety of automatic and
semi-automatic players. It is a shared, on-and-off hobby of
several people cooperating in
<a href="irc://irc.freenode.net/interhack">#interhack on
freenode</a>.
</p>
<p>
The TAEB project was started in November 2007 based on experience
gained from several earlier bot projects, most of them with much
smaller teams. Through its flexibility and extensibility, it has
since surpassed all of the previous efforts to build a NetHack bot, and
has only one viable competitor,
<a href="http://github.com/canidae/saiph">saiph</a>. TAEB is capable
of reaching Medusa depth on a somewhat regular basis, and has a
sufficiently expressive set of primitives to build
<a href="http://github.com/sartak/TAEB/blob/master/lib/TAEB/AI/Demo.pm">an Oracle-class bot in roughly 100 lines of clear code</a>.
</p>
<p>
If you think hacking on an AI project for an addictive (and
fairly hard) computer game sounds like fun, you're welcome to
come join us in #interhack. TAEB is a fairly large project,
but well commented, and admits sharing work between AIs so
you don't have to agree with the team on all design issues.
