HeroX Cognitive Computing Challenge: read a document, load database with results


HeroX launched the Cognitive Computing Challenge – a $200,000 USD incentive prize to build a cognitive system that can read a document, then accurately load a database with what it finds.



HeroX Cognitive Computing

HeroX is a spin-off of XPRIZE – the leading organization solving the world’s grand challenges by managing large-scale, incentive prize competitions.

HeroX recently launched the Cognitive Computing Challenge – a $200,000 USD incentive prize to build a cognitive system that can read a document, then accurately load a database with what it finds. Essentially, to teach a computer to mimic the human brain.

Currently, a huge amount of information is locked in written documents which is read and analyzed manually by humans. The solution to this challenge will eliminate repetitive tasks, reduce time and minimize errors.

This world-wide challenge is sponsored by Dynamic Risk, whose focus is to improve pipeline safety and reduce environmental impact. However, this technology has broader applications across industries such as healthcare, security and emergency response.

Entry to compete is free. Last date for submission is January 11, 2016.
