Deadline: 2019-08-09 Award: $10,000 Open to: Everyone*
Use your training skills to create images, rather than identify them. You’ll be using GANs, which are at the creative frontier of machine learning. You might think of GANs as robot artists in a sense—able to create eerily lifelike images, and even digital worlds.
Why dogs? We chose dogs because, well, who doesn’t love looking at photos of adorable pups? Moreover, dogs can be classified into many sub-categories (breed, color, size), making them ideal candidates for image generation.
Five awards of $2,000 each are up for grabs.
