Time is Running Out to Enter the Acumos AI Challenge

By July 31, 2018Blog

We’re only 5 days away from the finish line of the Acumos AI Challenge!

The challenge, sponsored by AT&T and Tech Mahindra, is an open source developer competition for the Acumos AI platform seeking innovative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. The companies, along with The Linux Foundation, encourage students, developers and data scientists to submit their ground-breaking AI solutions for a chance to win a share of $100,000 in prize money and industry recognition.

So far, more than 250 developers, students, and data scientists have registered for the challenge. The submission deadline is fast approaching, so we are encouraging all others who have a great idea for an AI solution to submit by 11:45pm US Pacific this Sunday, August 5.

The Challenge is looking for AI solutions across any and all use cases from 5G and SDN to enterprise solutions to media and entertainment. So, show us what you’ve got!

The top three teams will win a trip to participate in the finals at AT&T Spark in San Francisco on September 10, where the 1st place team will win the $50,000 grand prize. The 2nd and 3rd place teams will each be awarded $25,000. Plus, all finalists will have their solution featured in the Acumos Marketplace, receive PR exposure, and have the opportunity to meet with AT&T and Tech Mahindra executives during the event. In addition, all eligible AI solutions entered will be made available as open source in the Acumos Marketplace.
