TAC-12 is now (mostly) history. The Ad Auction (AA) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) divisions had their semifinals and finals in Valencia earlier this month. Results are posted on the TAC web site. The PowerTAC finals were postponed to September.
Our own Deep Maize placed first in SCM, with second place going to a strong new entry “Punga2Bani” from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest. We had a tight finish among the top 3 agents in AA, with Mertacor (Thessaloniki) edging out Schlemazl (Brown) and TAU (Tel Aviv).
