Challenge outline

Are you software developer passionate about Artificial Intelligence? Maybe you're just beginning your coding adventure and would like to learn more about AI and meet likeminded individuals?

Go to the first Polish Artificial Intelligence Hackathon taking place in Wroclaw on 22nd Oct. The event is part of ChallengeRocket EMEA Coders League series.

Come one, come all! It will be a great fun:-) If you have any questions reach us at office@challengerocket.com. Write "EMEA Coders League - Wroclaw" in the topic.

How it works?

1. Mini-competition:

For 2 hours we're going to create basic AI bots playing simple Prisoner's dilemma game. Than we're going to let all bots to compete and see which one is the best! We code  & play mainly for fun and training but still winners are going to receive small gifts!

Read more about Prisoner Dilemma here.

It does not matter what programming language you code and what's your experience with AI so far. As long as you think you have a smart idea for the optimal game strategy, come and see how you stand against others!

2. Oxford Debate:

The motion is: "AI could spell the end of the human race". Those are famous words of Stephen Hawking. This famous physicict os of the many many people claiming that once humans develop artificial intelligence it would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate creating serious threat to human beings.

Do you think that machine intelligence will eventually surpass biological intelligence and do you believe in significant existential risk asosciated with that transition? Is psychotic HAL 9000 in "2001: A Space Odyssey," just scie-fi story or is it realistic scenario worth considering for future generations? We'd love to hear your thoughts! Take part in our debate on Sat 15th and let us know what you think!
