About the Challenge

This year’s challenge consists of three new categories: Edge Computing, Data Center AI and Big Data Analytics.
To foster innovation in adaptive compute acceleration in the academic setting, there is a special $2,500 cash award sponsored by the Xilinx University Program (XUP), where university students can submit their projects in addition to the three regular contest categories.
There is also a special award “Women in Technology” with a cash prize of $2,500 USD. Teams composed by a majority (50% or more) of women are eligible to submit their project for this award in addition to the three regular contest categories.
