BCS Machine Intelligence Competition 2008: Final Call

http://www.bcs-sgai.org/micomp/

The Seventh British Computer Society Machine Intelligence
Competition - FINAL CALL

Wednesday December 10th 2008 at Peterhouse College,
Cambridge, UK, during the annual SGAI conference AI-2008

Closing Date for Entries: October 1st 2008

This is the seventh in an annual series of competitions for live
demonstrations of '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 and conference registration is  not
required.

Prize: A permanent trophy awarded for one year plus a 1,000
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 registered delegates at the conference 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.
