Total prize: $8,750 

Landing page: https://contest.intersystems.com


Prizes

1. Experts Nomination - a specially selected jury will determine winners:

🥇 1st place - $4,000 

🥈 2nd place - $2,000 

🥉 3rd place - $1,000

2. Community winners - applications that will receive the most votes in total:

🥇 1st place - $1,000 

🥈 2nd place - $500 

🥉 3rd place - $250

If several participants score the same amount of votes, they all are considered winners, and the money prize is shared among the winners.  

Who can participate?

Any Developer Community member, except for InterSystems employees. Create an account!

👥 Developers can team up to create a collaborative application. Allowed from 2 to 5 developers in one team.

Do not forget to highlight your team members in the README of your application – DC user profiles.

Contest Period

🛠 June 28 - July 18: Application development and registration phase.

July 19 - July 25: Voting period.

🎉 July 26: Winners announcement.

Note: Developers can improve their apps throughout the entire registration and voting period.

The topic

🤖 Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning 🤖

Develop an AI/ML solution using InterSystems IRIS. Your application could be a library, package, tool, or any AI/ML solution which uses InterSystems IRIS.

Here are the requirements:

  1. Accepted applications: new to Open Exchange apps or existing ones, but with a significant improvement. Our team will review all applications before approving them for the contest.
  2. Build the app that either uses AI/ML capabilities with InterSystems IRIS.
  3. The application should work either on IRIS Community Edition or IRIS for Health Community Edition or IRIS Advanced Analytics Community Edition.
  4. The application should be Open Source and published on GitHub.
  5. The README file to the application should be in English, contain the installation steps, and contain either the video demo or/and a description of how the application works.
  6. Source code of the InterSystems ObjectScript part (if any)should be available in UDL format (not XML). Example.

The requirements above are subject to change.

➡️ Some ideas for contestants.

Use Embedded Python to join the current contest! 

Embedded Python is a new feature of InterSystems IRIS that gives you the option to use python as a "first-class citizen" in backend business logic development with InterSystems classes.

Embedded Python could be used in "on-demand" images that could be delivered via InterSystems InterSystems Early Access Program (EAP) if you refer to python-interest@intersystems.com. More details here.

Here are some ideas for contestants:

  1. New ML language. Interoperability with numerical computational languages or even CASes proper are great and offer the freedom of choice. Furthermore, these math-oriented languages allow faster problem search/space traversal than more generalized languages such as Python. Several classes of supporting ML problems can be solved with them. Callout interface makes implementation process easy (reference community implementations: PythonGateway, RGateway, JuliaGateway). Suggested languages: Octave, Scilab
  2. New showcases in IoT, Real-Time predictions, RPA. Convergent Analytics group provides a lot of starting templates in these fields - as InterSystems IRIS capabilities are an especially good fit for them. I'm always interested in more examples, especially real-life examples of machine learning.
  3. Data Deduplication solutions. Do you have a dataset with a lot of dirty data and know how to clean it? Great. Make a showcase out of it.
  4. Reinforcement learning showcases. Examples of Partially observable Markov decision process or other reinforcement learning technologies.

Developers!

Future Participants!

Don't forget about our special technology bonuses that will give you extra points in the voting. 🤩

Try them and start to upload your cool apps! 😃

Happy coding!

Dear Developers! 

We have one additional idea for an application.
Often, new UI components and pages are relevant to provide customers additional information within an app. We would like inject "AI Apps" into our HealthShare Clinical Viewer (HS CV). 

A custom app wrapper component in the HS CV needs to be implemented. We will provide a HealthShare environment together with an AI App on the AI platform of DataRobot to you. https://www.datarobot.com/blog/introducing-no-code-ai-app-builder/

For additional details please reach out to Eduard or myself. We are ready to chat!
