FINAL CALL FOR ENTRIES: BCS Machine Intelligence Competition, October 2013, London, UK

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

The Eleventh British Computer Society Machine Intelligence 
Competition 

Monday October 7th 2013 at BCS London Office (near Covent Garden).
This is a free event open to all (registration required).

Closing Date for Entries: Friday July 26th 2013

This is the eleventh 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.
