We crowdsource AI solutions from data + problem to a solution in 10 weeks

Define & Recruit

The goal and the “data work”

The lead up time is undefined and depends on how fast we can define the problem to be solved by our AI for Good community. Data is important for any machine learning project. Where data isn’t available, extracted or usable, data sourcing and preparation work has to be done before we start the challenge. Based on our current capacity, we’ll find the best course of action.

PROMOTE & RECRUIT

Challenge announcement

From the moment of announcement until the launch of the challenge we will spend 6 weeks to recruit participants and give challenge-focused masterclasses to get everyone up to speed. We’ll connect the organization and partners to our AI for Good community, generate awareness to promote the cause and recruit the challenge team. There will be typically 2 masterclasses, one on the challenge domain and one on the AI applicable to that domain.

Execute

Challenge kick-off

We’ll get all the teams together, introduce the partners, AI for Good Engineer team, the project manager, product owner, scrum master, work group coordinators and a storyteller. We’ll present the challenge goals and give background information, instruct the teams on all organizational details. The 10 week project is kicked off.

Midterm presentations

Besides regular weekly updates, we’ll have a check-up on progress halfway in the challenge. Depending on the challenge, midterm presentations usually conclude a data analysis, tool and model sourcing first part of the challenge. Figuring out what’s available out there and what would be the best fit to tackle the challenge.

Final presentations

At the end of the 10 week streak, we’ll have everyone back to present the results and learning points, talk about their experience, what did and what didn’t work. This event is a public affair, we’ll announce it over our channels and encourage our community to register and attend. The recording will be available to view on demand for everyone interested in the topic.

IMPLEMENT & ACCREDIT

Wrapping up and sharing results

We get stuff done. The challenge owner takes the results of the challenge team and implements them. To expand the impact of the AI for Good challenges we’ll make the result accessible to the public via open source channels. We’ll accredit the participants with certificates highlighting their achievements and acquired skills. We’ll spread the word about the challenge, partners and the team and their accomplishments.

Submit an AI for Good Challenge

Do you have data and a problem that can be solved by applying machine learning technology? Let us organize a group of up to 50 AI engineers to address the issue and come up with an MVP in 10 weeks time. Our platform facilitates a productive exchange of AI expertise.
