Deadline for entries to CodeFest extended to 13 November: still time to
be in with a chance of winning up to €20 000!
Talented coders resident in any
EPO member state now have until 13 November to enter our CodeFest on green
plastics, in which the prize money available totals
€45 000. The deadline has
been extended so that everyone has sufficient time to submit a proposal to the code challenge.
This is a unique opportunity to
write an AI code that improves access to the latest patent information on green
plastics and helps rid the planet of plastic waste. There’s also a chance to
win a substantial cash prize.
No time to lose
So go for it: spread the word or submit
a proposal by 13 November! Entries are welcome from solo coders or teams of
up to five, whether made up of talents from outside the EPO, or EPO staff, or a
mix of both. Each proposal must include an explanation of the intended approach
and indicate the intended data selection, the possible model implementation and
the model evaluation.
