Registration to the hackathon for creating "digital centaurs" is open

National Technological Initiative starts the registration to the "Mind games" hackathon. School and college students aged 16 to 24 can take part in creating "digital centaurs". They will try to act as interface developers, product analysts, project and product managers.

At the preliminary qualifying stage the participants will have to complete several tasks and present an idea to be realized at the hackathon. The second qualifying stage will be held in Moscow from April 30 to May 2. During those days the technology teams will need to develop a teaching interface that would allow a player to interact with artificial intelligence in a way to increase the player's efficiency and their combined chances of winning. Experienced Go players, artificial intelligence professionals and market experts from the national technological initiative will be mentors at this contest. The hackathon winners will share a prize pool of 300 000 rubles.

During next month the best teams will make some final adjustments in their prototypes of virtual advisers and present them at the Genius Extreme Go festival in Vladivostok.
Centaur matches in which players will be using AI advisers will be played as part of the WAGC business program.

Registration is open until March 29. If you want to take part, follow the link:
