Abstract / Summary

The proposed submission is a paper-in-progress that seeks to
examine the appeal of watching AI compete against one another.
This paper takes, as its primary case study, Saltybet.com [1], a
streaming site which uses the M.U.G.E.N. fighting game engine
[2] and various player-made AI characters, and has them fight in
exhibition and tournament matches. Spectators of these matches
can bet fake money or ‘salty bucks’ on the outcome of a match
and a small community has grown around Saltybet’s unusual
entertainment prospect.
