Registrations are open for AIRtificial Intelligence contest. Take part in the competition!

Leonardo and the Italian Air Force, in collaboration with SMAU, are launching a challenge for start-ups, universities and developers to identify solutions that, using Artificial Intelligence, improve maintenance and training activities in the Air Force context.

01 August 2019

Are you a start-up, developer or researcher? We’re looking for you! Sign up for the AIRtificial Intelligence contest and take part in an hackathon focused on optimisation of maintenance and training operations in the aeronautical field.

AIRtificial Intelligence is an exceptional opportunity to build an ecosystem where knowledge, skills and talent of start-ups in the Artificial Intelligence field (Neural Networks & Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Semantic Web & NLP) come together and team up with universities, industry, organisations as well as with the Air Force.

On the 6th and 7th November 2019, all entrants who have passed the selection stage will take part in the two-day marathon hosted in the prestigious headquarters of the Istituto di Scienze Militari Aeronautiche in Florence, Italy. Competing teams will develop and present demonstrators for the solutions designed in response to the Hackathon “Challenge”. The event will conclude with the election of the winning team and the runner-up.

Participants will be supported by Leonardo and Air Force experts to better understand the operating context, technical and organisational aspects, as well as any constraints that characterise the systems, maintenance procedures and aeronautical training.

A jury of experts will select the two best solutions. The winning team will receive a cash prize of €3,500, while the runner-up will receive the sum of €1,500 in recognition of its work and commitment.

AIRtificial Intelligence is the second hackathon staged in Italy focusing on military aeronautical logistics after "Airathon" in 2018. 
The final marathon will be preceded by a virtual preparatory event (online), at the end of which participants will be selected for the challenge on the 6th and 7th November. This preparatory event will be held within a month of the final marathon and will be structured as a "Coding Challenge" on live coding platforms. The pre-event date will be published immediately after the registrations are closed.

For more details about the Challenge, consult the "Challenge" document.
