The Ninth British Computer Society Machine Intelligence Competition  

Wednesday December 15th 2010 at Peterhouse College, Cambridge, UK,
during  the annual SGAI conference AI-2010  

Closing Date for Entries: October 1st 2010  

This is the ninth 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 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.
