CALL FOR PAPERS: BCS Machine Intelligence Competition, December 14th 2011, UK

http://www.bcs-sgai.org/ai2011/
Contact: max.bramer@port.ac.uk

10th British Computer Society Machine Intelligence Competition, Peterhouse College, Cambridge, UK (during the annual SGAI conference AI-2011)

This is the tenth 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.
