Meet the Round Two Teams
We are happy to announce the 59 teams, representing 14 countries, advancing into the second round of the $5M IBM Watson AI XPRIZE. These teams are developing powerful artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges across a number of domains including Health & Wellness, Learning & Human Potential, Civil Society, Space & New Frontiers, Shelter & Infrastructure, Energy & Resources, and Planet & Environment. Our independent panel of judges evaluated the teams based on the standards they set in their plans, as well as the performance and scalability of their AI application, with the heaviest weight placed on the potential to achieve exponential impact.
The top ten teams from round one were recognized at the Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems on December 8th in Long Beach, California and the independent panel of judges selected aifred health (Montreal, Canada) and Amiko AI (Milan, Italy; London, United Kingdom), to receive round-one milestone awards.
