CNET: Google’s March Madness AI contest offers $100,000 in prizes. “Prizes can be useful incentives. They encourage people to take on challenges, say flying across the Atlantic Ocean or developing a self-driving car or finding large prime numbers. Now, Google has a great big incentive that will get almost the entirety of the country interested: $100,000 in prizes for computer scientists who write the best AI software to predict the outcome of the NCAA March Madness college basketball tournament.”
