Computer Society Co-sponsors XPRIZE/IBM Watson AI Competition
The AI XPRIZE Competition
asks participants to think about the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) research, focusing on the emergence of AI/human collaboration, commercial exploration of AI, and a larger understanding of what contribution AI can make to humankind. The competition starts in March 2017 and the final presentation will be at TED 2020. Because the challenge will occur over multiple years, final projects will include technologies and utilize skill sets that don’t exist today. The Computer Society is a co-sponsor of this prize, providing judges and publicizing the challenge. The winner will receive $3 million courtesy of IBM, with the runner-up getting $1 million and the third-place recipient getting $500,000. Learn more about this exciting competition and register here!
