Got an idea for a future AI for Life Sciences challenge? We’re looking for partners who’d like to set a challenge for future events. The possibilities are endless – the main criterion is that the challenge pertains to applying AI to a life science domain.


The first AI for Life Sciences hackathon is focused on the field of life sciences. The aim of the virtual challenge is to develop an innovative solution applying AI to life sciences use case. Our first challenge tackled using AI for soil health.

Each team can have a maximum of 5 team members. Teams should have at least 2 members to participate in the challenge.

Submissions will be judged based on the innovativeness of the solution, technical execution, impact and feasibility, and the presentation and communication of the solution.

There are cash prizes for the winning teams. 

1st place: $10,000

2nd place: $4,000

3rd place: $1,000

The first challenge ran for one month. Our next challenge is set to take place starting in June 2024; we are planning to extend the challenge duration to give participants more time to work on the challenge. More details to follow!
