IBM Watson Advantage

During the 2021 Nittany AI Challenge, IBM Watson will be sponsoring the advancement of two solutions that leverage the use of Watson technology and fall under the AI for Good pillar of health. IBM Watson will choose one team to automatically advance to the prototype phase and one team to automatically advance to the MVP phase. Teams funded through the IBM Watson Advantage are included in the total number of possible solutions funded at each level and are not additional. To be eligible, teams must substantively leverage IBM tools within their solution and are responsible for describing that use in each phase’s documentation and presentations.

AI for Good Pillar Partnerships

IBM Watson is the featured 2020–2021 AI for Good: Health pillar partner.

As an AI for Good pillar partner, IBM Watson is reinforcing its commitment to making the world a better place.
