The first UAE Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Awards for Good aim to encourage research and development to meet challenges in the health, education and social services sectors. But less than two weeks remain to enter the contest, where individuals, teams, universities and companies from around the world can all compete for £1m in prize money.
Today the UAE’s new International Council on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (iCAIR) formally announced the AI & Robotics for Good award. The goal of the award is to encourage robotics innovation that benefits society, in particular in the areas of education, healthcare and social services, and both hardware and software solutions will be eligible. Two prizes will be given: a national prize worth 1M AED, and an international prize worth $1M USD. The Robotics for Good launch comes just days after the UAE’s Drones for Good competition held its awards ceremony in Dubai.
