IBM Watson AI XPRIZE
16 people make up the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE team. We are participating in this competition which challenges teams from all over the world to show how humans can collaborate with Artificial Intelligence to solve the pressing problems we face today. Being something so complex and broad, the organisers have not fixed any specific requirements to the entries.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Our proposal is to solve one of the greatest challenges that humanity faces with the help of Artificial Intelligence. Our entry in the IBM Watson X Prize is called AIEDUCA and our objective is, as well as a winning the prize, to solve the problem of education globally.
Education with a capital E deals with a monumental problem – it is very difficult to find someone who is able to learn what they need, at the moment they need it and at the speed they require.
Global with a capital G because our solution is not only applicable to the developed world with a high-speed internet connection and cutting-edge hardware for AI software, but rather it is aimed at the whole planet. We know that 53% of the inhabitants of the planet do not have access to the internet and thus we are thinking of and testing solutions aimed at that demographic majority who can’t simply be redirected to a webpage o instructed to download an app.
OUR ADDED VALUE
Developing this Project could have the effect of totally revolutionizing the way that we learn in the world.
