What would you or your Institution of Higher Education (IHE) do with up to $100,000? Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division has designed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) Innovation Challenge at Dahlgren with a prize purse of $100,000, which could be split by a percentage to team members or to the IHE. The breakdown – 1st place is $50,000, 2nd place is $30,000 and 3rd place is $20,000.
How do you win? Develop AI and ML algorithms for the automated scheduling and coordination of simulated directed energy, hypervelocity projectiles and other advanced weapon systems. The challenge is split into two phases – small white paper and in-person event.
Gather a team of five members or less and submit a paper. Your entry must articulate why your team wants to participate in the challenge and why the team believes they will develop an AI/ML algorithmic solution that will best meet the objectives. The criteria are:
