The Details

Students must create a useful AI program in seven days, and present their product in the theater at noon on the 29th. Judges will include faculty and other professionals. 

  • The project must do something useful, not just be a demo of making AI work.
  • A project that has multiple AI abilities will usually win against one that has fewer.
  • The contest will be from Friday the 22nd to Friday the 29th.
  • Contestants can use any coding language they choose.
  • You can use AI, restful API’s or write your own AI code from scratch. However, only the AI, innovation and user experience are judged, not the level of difficulty of your code.

The AI MUST include at least one or more of the following elements below, unless approved by professor Hinton:

  • Speech to Text (Listening)
  • Text to Speech (Talking)
  • Facial Recognition (Seeing)
  • Emotion Detection in Humans (Empathy and Understanding of Emotions)
  • Reading the intent in text correctly (Comprehension)
  • Object classification (Identifying items and location in pictures)
  • Machine Learning / Cyber Security
  • Mapping
  • Pathfinding
  • Self-Driving


There are three TECH prizes.

On Friday, June 29th at noon, the winners will get to choose their prizes. First place winner can choose from one of the three prizes. The second place winner will then pick one of the two prizes left, and the third place winner will receive the last remaining prize.
