The ODNI-OUSD(I) Xpress Challenge: Machine Generation of Analytic Products
Deadline: 11:59 PM, July 5, 2017
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (OUSD, I) seek to uncover current capabilities and examine the feasibility of using natural language processing (NLP) and related artificial intelligence technologies to craft intelligence products with national security implications. This Challenge poses a representative question to be answered by respondents using an automated system of their own design. Solvers will be provided with a fixed dataset of thousands of national security-related articles and blog posts and asked to produce, using no human intervention, an intelligence product addressing the question using only the content provided. The total award pool is $500,000 with $50,000 available for the top submissions in various technical areas and $100,000 for the overall best submission. In an effort to promote early science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, a total of $30,000 in Early STEM Education awards will be made to the corresponding school for the three best performing high school student team submissions.
