WEBINAR: Leave your mark on the future: General AI Challenge Online

Apr 26, 2017 · London, United Kingdom

Hey TensorFlow'ers!

We are launching our first webinar with GoodAI guys who will teach us about General AI Challenge and run with you trough various tasks.

General AI Challenge

General AI Challenge is an opportunity to contribute to mankind’s most exciting effort yet: general artificial intelligence.

In the recent years, interest in AI is quickly growing. The ultimate goal for many researchers is to develop a system that could perform as well as humans in a broad set of tasks, without having to be manually programmed for each. However, most of the recent successful stories are examples of so-called 'narrow AI' that can perform only on a single task.


GoodAI is general artificial intelligence R&D company from Czech Republic, which is focused solely on general AI.


On this webinar, GoodAI will introduce its General AI Challenge with $5M prize fund, aiming to tackle crucial research problems in human-level AI development. 

Olga Afanasjeva, Challenge Director, will explain the concept of the competition and the idea of 'citizen science', and GoodAI research team will be there to explain and demonstrate the tasks.

Techie details:

In the first round of the Challenge, you will be programming and training an AI agent that will engage in a dialogue with the CommAI-Env environment. They will exchange bytes of information, and in addition the environment will give feedback signals to the agent to guide its behavior. Your agent should demonstrate gradual learning—the ability to use previously learned skills to more readily learn new skills (and in this case, to answer questions generated by the environment). 

GoodAI will provide you with a platform-independent (Win,Linux,Mac) set of training tasks that you can use as reference, implemented in CommAI-Env.
