About the members' page
SGAI, the British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence, was founded in June 1980. The Group's mission is: "To foster achievement, capability and awareness in both business and research in Artificial Intelligence, and to promote the interests of the related community". It is one of Europe's longest established groups working to support the community of artificial intelligence developers and users.

SGAI has organised an annual international conference since 1981, as well as colloquia, evening lectures and other events of many kinds.

SGAI is a Specialist Group of The British Computer Society and has been a member of ECCAI, The European Co-ordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence, since 1992.

MACHINE INTELLIGENCE COMPETITION 2016

British Computer Society Machine Intelligence Competition 2016 http://bcs-sgai.org/micomp/

This is a free event held as the final part of Real AI 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 are available on the website.

Attendance at the competition is included in the registration fee for Real AI 2016 (http://www.bcs-sgai.org/realai2016/). All those attending will be eligible to vote for the winning entry.

Those wishing to attend the BCS Machine Intelligence Competition only may do so free of charge. It will begin at 4.10 p.m. at the BCS London office and will end by 6 p.m. at the latest. To ensure entrance to the building it is essential to give advance notice of attendance. You can do this by email to max.bramer@port.ac.uk up to the start of the competition.
