Can artificial intelligence give a TED talk? The XPrize Foundation wants to find out.

Innovative non-profit XPrize Foundation is teaming up with TED to advance artificial intelligence, but it wants your help to make it happen.

The two organizations are throwing the gauntlet down to AI enthusiasts by offering “a modern-day Turing test” to the team that delivers a TED talk with no human input whatsoever.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

That’s the basic premise, but XPrize and TED want fans of technology to come up with the rules for this challenge. To take part and help shape the unique opportunity, just visit the XPrize-TED website and submit your opinion.

We look forward to seeing the fruits of this challenge, which is unique even for XPrize standards.
