Check out the 2016 UChicago App Challenge. No technical experience necessary (like this one) and the chance to win $10,000 to make your idea a reality. Deadline November 15.
STAY CONNECTED/REMIND ME OF THE DEADLINE!
HOW EASY IS IT TO ENTER?
It's as simple as filling out a series of human-understandable questions below. Nothing else is required, except your good idea. Your first submission might take all of half an hour, if you're already well versed in the problem and solution! You can submit as many ideas as you'd like.
WHAT COULD I WIN?
1. Every entry submitted is eligible for consideration for a Spring 2016 Practicum in conjunction with the UChicago Masters Program in Computer Science. If your entry is chosen, your idea will become part of a 10-week project with a student programmer and Cognitive Computing subject matter expert.
2. One lucky entry will receive $1000. Pretty good for 30 minutes worth of work!
DO I NEED TO BE A PROGRAMMER OR COGNITIVE EXPERT?
Nope. It's easy to develop something, it's hard to get a good idea. Students, faculty, and staff are eligible -- with a few exceptions. If you're passionate about something in your research or day-to-day life, consider entering.
