The University of St. Gallen in Switzerland organizes a new public competition: “The First University of St. Gallen Grand Challenge: The EU A.I. Act 2023”.

We offer the prize of 100’000 CHF (approx. 100’000 USD/EUR) to the team that assesses best the compliance of A.I. technology with the upcoming A.I. Act of the European Union.

We invite potential teams and team members worldwide to participate in the Grand Challenge.

The main event of the Grand Challenge will be the Final on 18-19 July 2023 at SQUARE, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.

The Final will be preceded by a Boot Camp on 11 or 12 July 2023.

On Thursday, 2 March 2023, 3 pm CET, we will host an online informational event, the “Proposers’ Day”, to provide details and guidelines for participants.

The Proposers’ Day also serves to foster and bring together teams (“matchmaking”).
