Hundreds of competitors from over 50 countries have entered the ITU Challenge on AI and Machine Learning in 5G to showcase their talent, test their concepts on real data and real-world problems, and compete for global recognition.
Competitors are meeting new partners in the ITU community – and gaining access to new tools and data resources – to achieve goals set out by problem statements contributed by industry and academia in Brazil, China, India, Ireland, Japan, Spain, Turkey and the U.S.
The Grand Challenge Finale, an online conference in December 2020, will demo outstanding solutions and decide the overall winners of the Challenge.
Select your challenge
The Challenge welcomes students and professionals, competing as individuals or teams.
Each problem statement forms a unique challenge – ‘problem owners’ define the challenge, offer supporting tools and data resources, and highlight their evaluation criteria for proposed solutions.
Need guidance on solving the problems?
‘AI for Good’ webinars with the problem owners are connecting competitors with mentors and leading experts in the application domains targeted by the problem statements.
