FACEBOOK Artificial Intelligence Hackathon- Build AI natural language interactions with Wit.ai
Facebook is passionate about bringing the world closer together by advancing artificial intelligence – connecting people to what they care about, powering new, meaningful experiences, and advancing the state-of-the-art through open research and accessible tooling.
Whether you’re just getting started, or an experienced pro, they invite you to submit a solution featuring natural language interactions that leverage the Wit.ai platform. Not only is this a chance to put your skills to the test and preview the refreshed Wit.ai, but you’ll also discover that you don’t need to be an AI/ML developer to build powerful natural language experiences that can solve real problems right away. They encourage you to build solutions that connect people and drive greater productivity. Whether it’s local discovery, small businesses serving their neighborhoods, or learning a new skill with your friend – they believe the true potential of this platform is unlocked when they build new and engaging ways for their users to connect with products they love.
