Closing Date for Entries: Friday July 27th 2012
This is the tenth in a series of competitions for live demonstrations of applications that show 'Progress Towards Machine Intelligence' organized by the British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence (SGAI) in association with AKRI Ltd.
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).
This competition will put on show real systems demonstrated live. It is hoped that the competition and the competitors, over several years, will provide a new interest and visible improvements in the development of machine intelligence.
Entry Fee: There is no entry fee.
Prize: A permanent trophy awarded for one year plus a £500 cash prize.
Format: The prize will be awarded on the basis of a 10-15 minute live demonstration (not a paper or a technical description). The prize will be awarded to the demonstration that in the opinion of the judges best demonstrates 'progress towards an intelligent machine'.
Judges: All those attending the competition will be eligible to vote in a secret ballot.
Eligibility: The competition is open to all. A maximum of 5 entries will be presented. To control numbers, these will be selected by the organizers on the basis of information provided by the entrants.
