World Record Attempt

ARCathon, hosted from Davos, Switzerland, is a global AI competition. This highly challenging event welcomes participants to tackle the Abstraction and Reasoning Corpus (ARC) challenge  unsolvable for the most advanced AI models currently available. The ARC problem, an intelligence test for algorithms, was created by François Chollet, a Google Senior Staff Engineer and Co-Host of ARCathon.

 

AI suitable for the Real World

Current AI systems excel at learning from extensive data but fall short in mastering tasks with limited examples. This makes it very challenging to create systems that can handle the variability and unpredictability of the real world, such as science advancing AI systems and self-driving cars. The ARC challenge uniquely assesses AI's capability to understand and solve problems it has never encountered before, using minimal demonstrations.

 

Self-learning Systems

With over 1,000 tasks, including 100 undisclosed puzzles, ARCathon pushes AI beyond its current limits, aiming to surpass the existing 30.5% success rate benchmark. The goal of ARCathon is to move closer to AI that can quickly learn to solve new problems on its own. For more information about ARC, you can visit our ARC Page, as well as refer to François Chollet's pioneering 2019 paper On the Measure of Intelligence.

Recap of last Year

Threshold Prize Money

CHF 69’000

Win CHF 1’000 for every percentage point above

Win CHF 1’000 for every percentage point above the current ARC world record:

the current ARC world record:

 = 31%

Go down in History ...

Take part in the ARCathon 2023 and push the boundaries of AI! For every percentage point achieved above 31% (Milestone-32), you will receive CHF 1,000. If a new world record is set, the benchmark will be updated. In addition, the first team to reach 42% (Milestone-42) will be honored at the Swiss AI Awards and the first three teams to reach Milestone-42 can have their names engraved on a stone in the Swiss Alps.

 

... and collaborate

You are invited to discuss and share best practices with all other participants on our Discord server. All information about ARC and the submission process is available on the ARCathon Guide Page. In addition, Lab42 provides permanent team support from our experts, including answering technical or administrative questions via the ARCathon email.
