Cognitive Computing Challenge

Cognitive computing challenge

Imagine if computers could read and interpret documents, to move forward towards this grand vision, we are sponsoring a challenge to solve the first part of this puzzle. We want a solution that can not only learn how and what data to extract from data sources like spreadsheets, word processor files, and computer generated PDF files but also learn how to map the data found in these documents to specified target fields in a database.

We want to fundamentally change how we ask questions and receive answers. Today, we ask questions based on the data we have available in structured databases. In the future we want to ask questions and not worry about having the data readily available in a structured format.

Submission Deadline:-Jan. 11, 2016, 4 p.m. PST

 Award:-Total Prize Amount $200,000
