Nah, give each a 128 node Beowulf system (each node is a 1ghz Athlon) to run on.
Each gets x time to load and construct/evolve their AI's, then they compete in a
virtual landscape constructed and operated by a third system. One key component
is while competing head to head, each has a virtual tamagotchi they have to care
for simultaneously. Competitions would cover the whole range, from combat, to
puzzle solving, art & music to free form essay questions judged by human judges
and 'compassion contests'.
