2018+ collaborative bot?

I propose that if the challenge has not been won by the 2017 challenge, developers should all combine forces to build a supreme human-beater.  That will allow a little time to get things right before the challenge expires, but should still prove climactic, and add a layer of extra interest to the final years.

My intuition would be that collaboration for Arimaa is harder than collaboration for the Netflix Challenge.  Can folks really mix and match bits of their code?  And if it is not code but ideas that would be shared, are there powerful ideas that folks have kept secret up to now?

For several reasons I cannot commit to such a plan at this point, but I don't discount it either Smiley I agree it would be very interesting if it were to happen.

I don't think it would be about combining code per se, but there definitely seems to be room for combining ideas. As you probably know, the top bots are not that similar to each other, some rely more on search and some on evaluation, so I bet it wouldn't be extremely hard to take stuff from one bot to improve the other.
 
This is before even thinking about the benefits of having an actual team working on the same code.
