 We'll explore two tracks:

  • Mediatech: Delve into the intersection of AI and media, unlocking possibilities for enhanced content creation, distribution, and audience engagement

🌐 Who Should Participate

We're looking for the brightest founders and builders who have bold ideas with the potential for global impact. We believe the best innovations often come at the intersections of disciplines so we encourage individuals or teams (up to 4 members) from a diverse range of backgrounds to apply. The only requirement is that they are passionate about AI and can leverage their experiences as hackers, engineers, designers, and storytellers to identify and prototype new use cases, interfaces, or behaviors that couldn’t exist without generative AI.

While all are invited to apply, space will be limited. We’re prioritizing submissions that:

  • Bring to life a novel B2B or consumer use case

  • Enhance or integrate wearables

  • Embody a large vision and the potential to engage a broad set of users on a frequent basis – either directly via novel application experiences, step function improvements to current user behavior, or indirectly via enabling technology.

To be eligible for prizes, at least 1 team member needs to join us in NYC for the Demo Day on Saturday, May 11, 2024.

💪 Why Participate

1) You'll get priority access to many of the most in-demand toolchains that can help bring your ideas to life, including:

  • Galileo: An end-to-end platform for GenAI evaluation, experimentation, and observability

  • Gradient: An AI platform that provides fine-tuning, RAG development, industry LLMs, and Agent Tools out-of-the-box

2) The top projects will have the opportunity to pitch investors from leading venture firms including Union Square Ventures, Intel Capital, Comma Capital, Flybridge, and Samsung Next.
