Innovation has been growing at an unstoppable pace. In the last two decades alone, we have gone from a world where only a few of us had a personal computer to a world in which most of us juggle multiple smart devices in the palm of our hands every day.
One thing that we see over and over is that innovation is accelerated by collaboration and communities that learn together.
This contest is an opportunity for you to share with the wider developer community what you have learned through the Arm AIoT Dev Summit and how this can be used to solve real-world problems in innovative ways.
Build a Proof-of-concept (PoC) that addresses a real-world problem by applying what you learnt at the Arm AIoT Dev Summit in the field of IoT, AI and Intelligent Machines.
Why not collaborate with other developers and experiment together!
Besides the awesome prizes you will have a chance to win! This is your chance to help to educate the community with what you have learned.
We are looking for an IoT, AI, robot or drone PoC that showcases the use of Arm technology in a creative and innovative way.
All you need to know to ensure your place in the project can be found on the requirements page.
100% yes! Make sure to read through all the criteria on the judging criteria page.
Yes, make sure to use the #ArmAIoTChallenge for any of your posts.
Absolutely! We feel that AI and ML are becoming more and more utilized in a plethora of different verticals. Some of the most innovative and creative innovation is happening thanks to the advancements in the area of ML and AI. We see more ML shifting to endpoint IoT devices enabling a whole new class of devices, we also see more and more use cases for autonomous drones and robots. We actively encourage you to consider how you can apply ML techniques to your problem.
We believe in communities and welcome collaborations and joint projects!
Absolutely, we want the knowledge to be spread not to be kept from the rest of the community.
Use the experience that sparked your curiosity and don't be shy to start working on something right away.
No, we also welcome innovative SW only projects.
No worries if you are not already part of an online developer community. Feel free to choose a community of your choice like Hackster, GitHub, Hackaday, Element14 or Arduino.
To be eligible for judging, you must meet ALL of the following requirements unless otherwise stated:
Instructions – Describe how you created your project, include images, screenshots, and/or videos. As well as a demonstration of the final working solution.
If you are using cloud services, make sure to include an architecture diagram and be specific about the different parts. If you are doing machine learning? Have you provided a Jupyter notebook or something equivalent.
Does your creation also involve a complex hardware setup, with perhaps multiple boards? If yes, are you depicting the circuit diagram? You can use software like Fritzing.org to draw it, and/or take detailed photographs.
Have you considered tackling a problem that hasn’t been tackled before? Or perhaps have you considered tackling an old problem in a different and more innovative way? Are you taking advantage of what you learned to push the boundaries in your areas of interest?
Are you using different Arm based hardware or different tools and software provided by Arm or the Arm ecosystem? Have you thought of combining multiple things you have learned in one product?
Have you tried to show your code to a friend, can they understand what you have wrote and why?
You only need to build a prototype, but have you considered what would stop you from building 1,000 units? Is there something else you should consider? What could be the biggest downfall?
Did you think about data security? Have you used any specific techniques to ensure that the data being captured is secured away from potential hackers?
Does your project have the potential to create positive change at scale? Have you heard about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals(SDG) (Global Goals)? Is your project addressing one or more of the 17 SDGs?
Have you thought how what you have learned could deliver positive social impact to children and their families living in cities? Make sure to have a look at the Tech Bets for an Urban World.
Is your creation able to operate on the acquired data locally without having to rely on a cloud connection all the time?
Have you developed a new deep learning model for the task you are trying to solve, or have you taken an existing model and adapted it to your use case? Or alternatively have you trained a pre-existing model using your own data set?
Is your autonomous machine able to operate on a specific task without any human inputs? Can it carry something from point A to point B autonomously? Can it launch a specific task only when a particular condition is met?
Make sure to post about your project updates using the #ArmAIoTChallenge to obtain extra points!
