Winter Cohort App Challenge Deadline

Have you experienced an unmet need or opportunity in your everyday life (at work, in your research, at home, or elsewhere)? Are you working on a research project that might benefit from an app, a website, or cognitive computing? Are you already working on an idea with UChicago (e.g., I-Corps, BIG, ITM) and want to build some part of it? Not sure?

Your ideas for machine learning and regular apps (mobile, web, or something else) could win you prizes and programming help.  You can enter both of the challenges – no programming experience required!

There’s two ways to enter and win:

Regular Challenge: Mobile, Web, etc.
Have you experienced an unmet need or opportunity in your everyday life (at work, in your research, at home or elsewhere)?

Focus Challenge: Cognitive Computing
If you could train a computer to answer questions or develop solutions, what questions would you ask or problems would you pose?

The UChicago App Challenge helps you translate that idea or observation into a mobile app, great website or something else (surprise us)! Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Polsky members can submit their ideas year-round. Win consideration for the Winter Cohort and a chance to win part of $10,000 in prizes.
