Huawei has recently announced 2022 Huawei GLOBAL AI CHALLENGE. The registration has started on June 24, and will include preliminary (June 24 to August 24) and elite final (September 3 to mid-September) stages.
What is Huawei GLOBAL AI CHALLENGE?
The Huawei GLOBAL AI CHALLENGE is in its fourth consecutive year since its start in 2019, and had attracted 2,500+ algorithm submissions, from nearly 8,000 teams in 45 countries and regions over its first three years. More than 150 contestants have been awarded. A number of outstanding contestants from the top universities and colleges in China were enrolled by Huawei. The competition marries theory with practice, bringing together young talent to nurture new AI technologies in both a theoretical and practical sense.
Seven teams will be selected from each proposal to enter the elite final, where a total of 21 teams for the three proposals will compete for cash prizes via an online competition and presentation. 15 AI experts from top universities and colleges in China form the distinguished judging panel, and accomplished Huawei technical personnel will share their firsthand experiences. Their expertise will bring an element of industry authority to the competition, and promote industrial and academic achievements, as well as research.
All full-time students who are formally enrolled at a higher-education institution now eligible to enroll in the competition and compete for US$210,000 in prize money. The competition is jointly held by the Jiangsu Association of Artificial Intelligence (JSAI), Huawei Consumer Cloud Service Department, and Huawei Nanjing Research Center, and aims to engage with aspiring young developers who share a passion for AI, as well as a commitment to applying AI to more scenarios for a fully connected, intelligent world.
Wang Yue, President of Huawei Consumer Cloud Service Application Ecosystem BU, set forth the competition’s lofty ambitions, noting, “The development of AI has ushered in an era of ubiquitous intelligence. We aim to inspire global campus talent to explore new AI frontiers, and solve global problems.”
Huawei’s Shining Star Program has set aside a total of US$210,000 as prize money for the contest, which will be distributed to the top seven teams for each of the three proposals. The champion will be awarded US$35,000, the first runner-up US$15,000, and the second runner-up US$10,000. In addition, four teams will earn an honorary mention, which entitles them to US$2,500.
The GLOBAL AI CHALLENGE is a unique opportunity to explore the boundaries of data science, algorithms, and AI. We warmly invite all student developers who are daring enough to challenge themselves, to showcase their best work to the wider world.
