One problem. One year. One nation. One Million Dollars. The Leaders Prize. Solving the Fake News Problem.

We are excited to announce that we are fast approaching 100 teams registered to tackle the Fake News Problem and compete for the $1,000,000 winning prize. Full competition details are at: https://www.leadersprize.ca. These teams are from across Canada, and include students, academia, and professionals from both large and small companies.

We selected Fake News for the inaugural competition given the huge impact this issue is having on society. Fuelled by the massive reach and speed of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, it has become significantly easier to spread false and misleading news.

We launched this competition to:

  • Inspire Canadians to tackle this global problem
  • Showcase the AI and engineering talents within Canada
  • Identify and recognize our best and brightest
  • Develop valuable intellectual property

It’s not too late to participate. Visit  https://www.leadersprize.ca to register.
