Facebook Artificial Intelligence Hackathon

Deadline: 24 June 2020
Open to: individuals, organizations, and teams
Awards: USD 7,000 in prizes


Facebook is passionate about bringing the world closer together by advancing artificial intelligence, connecting people to what they care about, powering new, meaningful experiences, and advancing the state-of-the-art through open research and accessible tooling. Whether you’re just getting started, or an experienced pro, Facebook invites you to submit a solution featuring natural language interactions that leverage the Wit.ai platform. Not only is this a chance to put your skills to the test and preview the refreshed Wit.ai, but you’ll also discover that you don’t need to be an AI/ML developer to build powerful natural language experiences that can solve real problems right away. In addition, you will connect with a global community of like-minded developers, benefit from educational resources and be in the running to win some awesome cash prizes.
