Ride-hailing giant Grab has launched AI for SEA, an initiative aimed at promoting the use of artificial intelligence for solving urban challenges in the region.
The challenges under the program will focus on three transportation-related problems that are prominent in Southeast Asia: traffic management, computer vision, and safety.
The top 50 participants will be offered full-time positions in the company’s data science and AI team.
The top five will also receive cash prizes, including S$10,000 (US$7,276) for the overall winner.
Grab will choose the winners after the demo day scheduled on the week of July 2.
Interested parties may register for the challenge until June 17.
