About

Digital Challenges is one of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology initiatives, which is a series of challenges concerned with emerging technologies, and each challenge consists of several stages, and each challenge has its own technology!

For the second challenge, we chose artificial intelligence technology; It is a technology that is able to learn, infer and simulate like humans, knowing how to solve problems, verify information, and perform tasks in ways that make sense as a human.

You will be able to register for the challenge, if you have:

Challenge Tracks
Computer Vision

A path based on ideas that provide smart solutions with artificial intelligence technology by enabling computers through intelligent systems to extract useful information from digital images, videos and other visual inputs, and to take actions or make recommendations based on that information, such as image classification, security devices and fault detection in production lines through automatic monitoring and more!

Natural Language Processing

A path based on ideas that provide intelligent solutions with artificial intelligence technology through NLP for the interactions between human languages and computers, where computer programs can understand human speech or written speech; By providing NLP to understand and respond to user questions, such as Siri and Alexa smart assistant systems, file rating software, or social media analytics.

Generative Modeling

A path based on ideas that provide smart solutions with artificial intelligence technology using the method of generative modeling that contributes to generating a description and representation of models based on data from the real world, with the aim of predicting and studying solutions, such as automatic image processing, text reading, image representation and text verification in security transactions by detecting the fake ones and more!

FAQs

The competition has three main tracks: Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Generative Modeling.

If you are accepted, a guide will be sent to you explaining the tools used and how to use them.

Attending workshops and counseling sessions is required to fully benefit from the program.

The award will be delivered to the idea owner and he is responsible for receiving and distributing it to his team members.

We are pleased to contact you and we will always be ready to help on the following e-mail: digitalchallenges@mcit.gov.sa

We welcome those who are passionate and interested in technology in general and Artificial Intelligence in particular, from the age of 16 years and above.

The competition focuses on supporting Saudi youth and developing their modern technical aspects to harmonize local technical thought with that of the developed world.

There is no fee as the Digital Challenges Program aims to support the nation's youth and raise technical competence in general.

Given the importance of each path of the challenge, it is necessary to register the participant with only one idea for each path separately.

The challenge will be implemented virtually, given the circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic.

It will be an intensive program that includes extensive training workshops and mentoring sessions with technical experts.

Both languages, Arabic and English.
