******* MACHINE INTELLIGENCE COMPETITION 2016 *******
British Computer Society Machine Intelligence Competition 2016
After a three-year gap it is with great pleasure that SGAI relaunches the BCS Machine Intelligence Competition, as part of the Group's one-day event Real AI 2016.
The eleventh BCS Machine Intelligence competition for live demonstrations of applications that show 'progress towards machine intelligence' will be held on Friday October 7th 2016 at the BCS London Office, First Floor, The Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London.
The winner will receive a cash prize plus a trophy.
The prize will be awarded on the basis of a 10-15 minute live demonstration (not a paper, not a technical description). The demonstration can be of either software (e.g. a question-answering system or a speech recognition system) or hardware (e.g. a mobile robot).
Full details of the competition and an online entry form are available on the website.
There is no entry fee but competitors will be asked to meet their own costs. The closing date is Friday September 9th 2016. However early entry is strongly advised.
Attendance at the competition is free of charge for those attending Real AI 2016 (http://www.bcs-sgai.org/realai2016/). All those attending will be eligible to vote for the winning entry.
