OPEN Call for AI & Space Tech
The AI Moonshot is a Global competition that combines AI and Space technologies to find solutions for the detection, location, and monitoring of maritime waste on a planetary scale. You can submit your proposal until October 9 if you have an innovative idea on how to solve the plastic marine litter problem.
This call is open to research groups, individual experts, consortia or partnerships between different people or entities, including companies or start-ups, from different backgrounds and geographies.

Proposals will be evaluated on innovation, scientific merit, team expertise, and impact of the project. The teams with the best proposals will be invited to pitch during WebSummit 2020, to take place in December 2-4 2020 where the winning team(s) will also be announced.
