The Acumos AI Challenge is Seeking Innovative, Open Source AI Solutions from Developers
The Acumos AI 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 prize money and industry recognition.
Acumos AI is a platform and open source framework that makes it easy to build, share and deploy AI applications. The Acumos AI platform, hosted by The Linux Foundation's LF Deep Learning Foundation, simplifies development and provides a marketplace for accessing, using and enhancing AI apps.
Contestants will compete for a share of $100,000 in cash prizes, including:
The top three teams will win a trip (for two members) to participate in the finals in San Francisco on or about September 10, 2018.
The 1st place team will win the $50,000 Grand Prize.
The 2nd and 3rd place teams will each be awarded $25,000.
Finalists will also have their solution featured in the Acumos Marketplace, receive PR exposure, and meet with AT&T and Tech Mahindra executives during the event.
In addition, all eligible AI solutions will be made available as open source in the Acumos Marketplace.
