Event description

Description

XPRIZE has contests that challenge a big problem or a moonshot and teams around the world compete for not just the prize, but also for the opportunities of marketing, promotion and investment derived from their participation. For example, in Japan, the Google Lunar XPrize participant, HAKUTO (https://team-hakuto.jp/), has gained a lot of attention in media and in the society.

But, there exists other XPRIZE contests happening, and I would like to call your attention to the IBM WATSON A.I. XPRIZE contest that is happening around the world, where teams/ companies that have an inventing/ applying innovative/ disruptive ways of using Artificial Intelligence are gathering around this contest.

In Japan, there are just three teams participating in this contest, so far. The deadline to become a contestant team has already passed, but, there is a way for still being able to join this worldwide class contest: to become a Wildcard team.

If you know a startup that is using a great A.I. technique that might disrupt an industry, or might provide a new machine learning technique that could benefit humanity, please let them know that they can become a Wildcard for the A.I. XPrize! and invite them to come to the A.I. XPrize Wildcard event for Japan this Thursday, November 16, 2017 6pm, promoted/supported by Exponential Japan and supported University of Tokyo. This is the last change to become a contestant of this worldwide A.I. movement and community.

Please find more information here: http://aixprize.jp/, and also please feel free to pass this information to those startups and/or to incubators and friends who are related to A.I. innovation that you know and that they could become a wildcard for A.I. XPrize and gain that local and regional recognition, and contesting for that global glory of winning this contest.

Looking forward to meeting you in the near future, and also looking forward to seeing teams recommended by you in this event and they becoming wildcards for the A.I. XPrize.
