Edu Pulse - Facebook: AI Natural Language Interactions (Prizes up to $7,000)

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, you are invited 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.

In addition, you will connect with a global community of like-minded developers, benefit from educational resources and be in the running to win some awesome cash prizes.  Facebook will also be providing a free swag giveaway* to each team member from an eligible submission.
