Research & Development in Artificial Intelligence
Lab42 is a global lab aiming for a giant leap: building human-level artificial intelligence.
Unlike other initiatives in the field, Lab42 focuses on AI challenges that are unsolvable to today’s algorithms, crafting a new generation of algorithms far more powerful than today’s machine learning approaches. Ultimately, Lab42’s objective is to decode the underlying mechanisms of human intelligence and to create AI for the benefit of humankind.
Lab42 grounds on a Research & Development program, which is structured along defined challenges and measurable milestones.

Lab42's first challenge towards AI
ARC 2 – The Abstraction and Reasoning Corpus 2 Challenge,
In Lab42’s first challenge hosted by François Chollet, the Abstraction and Reasoning Corpus 2 (ARC 2) Challenge, Lab42 challenges AI-enthusiasts from around the globe to develop a program that not only has skills but the intelligence to create them. A set of thousands of new tasks will be created, that require imagination and creativity, all unique and created in a crowdsourced approach by people from all over the world. This gives the ARC 2 Challenge an unprecedented and unique variety of individual tasks, where current approaches of AI are failing.
Starting in late 2022, we will run a competition on ARC 2. The goal of the competition is to develop an algorithm that is able to solve over 90% of the tasks of the private (secret) test set, without prior knowledge about the tasks. Lab42 runs the competition until the goal is achieved. Lab42 offers not only a prize money of UDS 20’ooo, but also the names of the winners shall be engraved for eternity in a stone in the Swiss mountains, a ceremony the winners are invited to attend in person, in Davos, Switzerland, upon invitation of the Mayor of Davos.
Sign up and unleash your creativity in the ARC 2 challenge! Admission is open.
« ARC is like an IQ test for machine intelligence, allowing us to quantify progress towards human level AI. »
