Are You Into Algorithms? You Could Win $50,000!

Don’t miss the chance to win $50,000 for your college or university! The Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division is hosting a challenge where competing teams can put their skills to the test and walk away with the top prize. The challenge is to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms for the automated scheduling and coordination of simulated directed energy, hypervelocity projectiles and other advanced weapon systems. It’s comprised of two phases – a white paper and an in-person event March 2-4, 2023 at the University of Mary Washington Dahlgren Campus. Phase 1 is a white paper and the deadline for it is November 15 at 11:59 p.m.

A question and answer session will be scheduled and announced on at

Dahlgren’s Chief Technology Officer, Jennifer Clift said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to bring our nation’s brightest students together for an innovation challenge where they will have an opportunity to use the same software and technology that our scientists and engineers use, to develop solutions for the warfighter in ways that NSWCDD has not yet explored.”
