$200,000 Cognitive Computing Challenge

HeroX, an organization that runs competitions for big ideas, has recently launched a competition that is relevant to the data science community. It is called the Cognitive Computing Challenge

The challenge sounds fairly simple.

Build a cognitive system that can read a document, then load a database with what it finds.

However, don’t be fooled by the description. Getting a computer to accurately read and “understand” a document is very difficult.

You have until January 11, 2016 to submit a solution, and the winner receives a $200,000 prize.

Anyhow, if you are interested, please join the competition. If you happen to compete and/or win, please leave a comment and I would love to blog about it. Good Luck!
