Artificial Intelligence (AI) has quickly evolved over the past few years and is changing the way we interact with the world around us. From digital assistants, to AI apps interpreting MRIs and operating self-driving cars, there has been significant momentum and interest in the potential for machine learning technologies applied to AI.
The Acumos AI Challenge, presented by AT&T and Tech Mahindra, is an open source developer competition seeking innovative, ground-breaking AI solutions from students, developers, and data scientists. We are awarding over $100,000 in prizes, including the chance for finalists to travel to San Francisco to pitch their solutions during the finals on September 11, 2018. Finalists will also have the chance to have their solutions featured in the Acumos Marketplace, exposure, and meetings with AT&T and Tech Mahindra executives.
